The Beaches is getting a cherry blossom tree tunnel.
Repeat: the already beautiful, destination-worthy, east-end Toronto neighbourhood is about to get its very own cherry blossom tree tunnel.
Ward 32 Beaches/East York councillor Mary-Margaret McMahon confirmed to Daily Hive that a donation has been made to the Parks Department from a Japanese donor specifically for the purpose of buying Sakura trees which will be planted in the same tradition as the world famous cherry blossom tunnels in Japan.
20 trees in total have been ordered for the 2017 season and the first 10 trees could be planted as early as this Friday, with the following 10 coming soon after.
The tunnel will be planted at Woodbine Park, down near the waterfront. And McMahon hopes that its creation will help ease the crowds at High Park by offering another amazing cherry blossom destination in the city.
The Beaches will also be looking for people to volunteer to ‘adopt a tree’ and help look after the new Sakuras so they can continue to grow and become even more impressive as the years go by.
Sounds like Toronto is about to get a new must-visit (see: Instagram crazy) spot in the city.
