Spring has sprung in Vancouver, and that means one thing: cherry blossom trees. These spectacular, sweet-smelling, baby pink trees are now in bloom all over the city. Below, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favourite spots to enjoy these magnificent spring trees.
VanDusen Botanical Garden
The VanDusen Botanical Garden is a must in spring. That’s because it is home to a beautiful cherry blossom grove for all to admire. Even better, this Vancouver botanical garden has the rare Shaughnessy ‘Beni-shidare’ variety of cherry blossom. Pick a sunny day and plan to spend an afternoon walking amongst the pink-hued trees at the VanDusen Botanical Garden.
Head over to Stanley Park this month to enjoy its many cherry blossom trees in full bloom. Specifically, visitors can find these gorgeous, sweet-smelling trees in two places. The first is near the formal rose garden, and the second is near the Japanese Canadian World War I war memorial. Bring your camera as these are great spots for photo opps.
Queen Elizabeth Park
Queen Elizabeth Park comes alive in springtime, which makes it an ideal spot for cherry blossom peeping. This 130-acre municipal park sits on the highest point in Vancouver, which means in addition to the pretty spring trees, you’ll also have a fantastic view of the park, the city, and the North Shore Mountains.
Nitobe Memorial Garden, UBC
Head to the University of British Columbia where you’ll find cherry blossoms planted in the university’s Nitobe Memorial Garden. This Japanese-inspired garden is a major attraction between March and April owing to the pink cherry blossom trees that bloom over the picturesque pond.
If you’re visiting Vancouver this spring, then you don’t want to miss out on cherry blossom season. And if you need a place to stay during your visit, we recommend the Georgian Court Hotel. We combine endless amenities and competitive rates with an unbeatable location in the heart of Vancouver.
