Toronto residents and visitors are obsessed with cherry blossoms! Technically called Sakura, these gorgeous flowering trees bloom each year between late April and early May (depending on weather conditions, of course). Gawkers descend upon parks across the GTA to stroll amongst the rows and, naturally, take lots of selfies! Don’t miss out, so check out our list of where to see Cherry Blossoms in Toronto.
Interesting note: some of our trees were even donated by Toronto’s sister city in Japan, Sagamihara!
