It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for – Brampton’s cherry blossoms are in bloom.
The City’s cherry blossoms are located at Joyce Archdekin Park along Main Street South, with an additional tree at the entrance to Gage Park. Cherry blossoms typically bloom in late April and in to May.
The City of Brampton was gifted cherry blossoms as part of the Sakura Project, which was initiated in the year 2000. The Sakura Project granted trees to a number of public locations in Ontario as a symbol of goodwill and friendship between Japan and Ontario. The City’s Parks and Forestry department planted the community’s trees in 2002 and 2003.
Brampton has approximately 70 cherry blossom trees. The City continues to maintain these trees with regular care and pruning.
Be sure to be respectful on your visit. Remember:
- Allow space for everyone to take photos and enjoy the scenery
- Do not litter
- Do not touch or pick the flowers, or climb the trees, as it is harmful to the trees
Enjoy the cherry blossoms, Brampton!
