High Park Will Remain Open, Virtual Events in the Works Ahead of Cherry Blossom Bloom Season

The cherry blossoms in High Park are on the verge of being in full bloom and Toronto Mayor John Tory says, unlike last year, the park will not be closed.

Mayor Tory says in keeping with the provincial stay-at-home order, the city is offering a virtual view of the blooms while maintaining local pedestrian and cyclist access to the park for fresh air and exercise.

Crowd-restraint measures are in place, including fencing around the three largest groups of trees to prevent people from gathering.

To ensure people have ample space to practice physical distancing, the park will be closed to vehicle traffic.

Last spring, High Park was closed from April 30th to May 10th and virtual events were held for the cherry blossom season to ensure residents can watch the bloom while still social distancing.

The blossoms usually last between four and 10 days and attract tens of thousands of people during the bloom.

Blossom watchers predict the blooms will begin next week with Sakura in High Park saying on Tuesday that buds are “well into the fourth and fifth stages of development.”

The Mayor says local visitors are still encouraged to walk or bike to the park and closure dates are weather-dependent and will be announced when the bloom period is determined.

Masks are still encouraged outdoors in situations where physical distancing is difficult and are mandatory while using washroom facilities and while waiting in line.
