Go Cherry Blossom Gazing

As the weather continues to warm up, Victoria’s beloved collection of cherry blossom and plum blossom trees are reaching their full peak.

Already we’ve seen some early washes of floral colour from our early bloomers and the vibrancy will only continue to grow as we dive deeper into spring.

If you’re looking to find your own special spot, the City of Victoria features an interactive map that lists all of the trees and their blossom dates.

For now, we’ve chosen some of our favourite spots around town to see the blooms.
