The City of Toronto has closed High Park on the advice of health officials, but you can still experience the beauty of the park from the comfort of your own home.

Canadians across our country can now access a front row view to the blossoming Sakura (cherry blossom) trees in Toronto’s High Park, thanks to free Internet services enabled by Fixed Wireless Access, donated by Rogers.

If part of your spring tradition is to stroll through the paths of High Park taking in the delicate pink flowers, then look no further than the 24 hour #BloomCam livestream sponsored by Rogers at toronto.ca/cherryblossoms.

In addition to a continuous livestream of the cherry tree grove in High Park, the City will also host multiple live events and videos featuring virtual walk-throughs of the blossoms with experts from the High Park Nature Centre.  

Every year at this time, tens of thousands of people visit High Park to view the cherry blossoms. The bloom period is typically from late April into early May, lasting between four and 10 days, depending on weather.

To encourage residents to stay home and stay safe, the City of Toronto High Park cherry blossom festival is going virtual to help stop the spread of COVID-19. For those who don’t live in or near the City of Toronto, this is an opportunity for you to enjoy the sight from wherever you are!
