Toronto's climate is about as maximum cold as the Sakura trees can survive that's why its delicate pink bloom is especially precious here. The best chance to see the trees blooming falls between late April and early May. In some years, when the winter is too long and frosty, Japanese cherry trees don't bloom at all. Fortunately, this doesn't happen very often. High Park is the most popular place to admire the beautiful cherry blossoms for locals and visitors alike. It is the largest public park in Toronto with hundreds of hiking trails, playgrounds, sports facilities, scenic lakefront, a zoo, and picnic areas.

Cherry trees blossom for about a week and a half if the weather is not rainy. Most of the sakura trees are concentrated in Hillside Gardens of the High Park. They are especially picturesque by the Duck Pond, one of the most photographed places in the park.
