Spring is almost here and a true sign of the season is the cherry blossoms that bloom every year in High Park. Except for this year, things are going to be a bit different. Instead of seeing crowds of people flocking to the west end park to witness these beautiful blooms, due to COVID-19 and the importance of social distancing, High Park is closed but the city of Toronto has found a way for people to still catch the flowers blooming in a way that doesn’t put the public’s safety at risk.
The city of Toronto has launched a 24-hour BloomCam of the cherry blossoms in High Park so folks can watch them bloom in real time.
A portion of the Toronto website dedicated to the High Park cherry blossoms reads, “To encourage everyone to stay home and stay safe, the City is planning multiple virtual cherry blossom experiences on a variety of social media platforms until peak bloom ends.”
There will also be two 30-minute livestream events taking place when the blossoms are in peak bloom.
Folks will be able to take a virtual walk through the blossoms. While the dates and times for these events are weather dependent, stay tuned to the Toronto city website for details.
Watching these cherry blossoms bloom is a Toronto tradition and while it definitely doesn’t make up for not witnessing it in person, we have to admit that this livestream is better than not seeing them at all.
