12 Places to See Cherry Blossom in Toronto/GTA

When winter melts away, and spring jumps out to take its place, one common occurrence you find is the “cherry blossom” flowers beginning to sprout on trees. For me, it’s a pleasant reminder that a season of fruitfulness is here, and summer is right around the corner.
 
Blossoms are in peak bloom currently with over 95% of them visible on the trees in most parks, and they all look incredible! Today, I am sharing 12 parks worth a trip to see cherry blossoms in and around Toronto.
 
Note – A stay-at-home order is still in full effect and I strongly advise you comply with the officials and only visit parks near you for essential reasons such as exercising – taking a walk.
 
For the second straight year, Toronto officials have closed off access to Trinity Bellwoods Park and High Park’s Japanese cherry, or sakura, trees, due to COVID-19 restrictions. In addition to those two, I have added ten more places to the list.
