Celebration of Spring Blossoms in Vancouver

Every year, after a cold and damp winter, Vancouver residents and visitors are rewarded with breathtaking blossoming of 40,000 ornamental cherry trees which herald the advent of spring. A profusion of pink and white flowers dot the urban landscape along boulevards, streets, parks and even the downtown area in and around The Auberge: pristinely pink cherry-blossomed trees line the walkway of Perch Park, where passers by can take a moment to sit at one of the tables or on a park bench, relax and enjoy a mini urban oasis.

Exploring Bloedel Conservatory & VanDusen Garden

Although Vancouver’s world-renowned Stanley Park receives the most annual visits by tourists and locals alike, here are a couple of under the radar outdoor spots just a little further away from the downtown core but definitely worth exploring: VanDusen Botannical Garden and Bloedel Conservatory, both accessible by crossing either the Oak or Granville St Bridges and minutes from the city center. Both properties are open seven days a week: VanDusen is the larger open air property whereas the smaller Bloedel Conservatory situated at the top of Queen Elizabeth Park is a beautiful oasis filled with plants, trees and birds under a geodesic dome.

Spring Has Sprung In Vancouver

Every year, once the bite of winter eases, something truly breathtaking materializes: the blossoming of 40,000 cherry trees spread across metro Vancouver in parks, city streets and even whole neighbourhoods. With spring just around the corner, the city will be showcasing this spectacular burst of frothy, pink blossoms which signal renewal and a new beginning. Spring has truly sprung!
