This is the final weekend to view the High Park cherry blossoms

May 17 2018, 2:16 am

If you haven’t been to High Park to view the cherry blossoms, you’re running out of time.

According to Sakura in High Park’s latest update, there are only a few more days left to view the blossoms as the season winds down, making this weekend your final chance to see the picturesque blossoms.

Rain and wind over the past week have knocked down a majority of the blossoms, cutting down the small window to view the blossoms in full bloom this year.

According to the latest update, most of the High Park trees are down to less than 25% of their blossoms.

However, there are still trees still showing lots of blossoms near the lower part of the Hillside Trail and along the shore of Grenadier Pond.

Sakura in High Park says with more rain on the forecast for the coming days, the chances of seeing the blossoms last over the May long weekend seem very slim.

However, Sakura in High Park did reveal that the Akebono and Fugenzo trees are about to bloom, which will help stretch the sakura hanami (flower blooming) season a little longer.

In case you can’t make it to High Park yourself, here’s what the cherry blossom madness looked like this year.
