High Park Sakura 2013
May 4, 2013 by jnyyz
Today we went to see the sakura on a Saturday afternoon. Here we are setting off with some friends and neighbours as well.
Three kid stokers powering up a hill.
We see that the traffic is backed up quite a bit on High Park Blvd.
We knew it was going to be crowded, but judging from the crowd around the soccer field, it was going to be really bad.
Traffic back up on the way to the cherry blossoms.
Our bike fleet parked.
People, people everywhere.
The sakura were beautiful. This camera (Oly EPL-5) sometimes has a tendency to punch up the colours on default settings.
The line to the portapotties. Compare this to last week.
Traffic on the way out.
The sakura should be good for about a week. If you can possibly go there during the week, it will be much less crowded and more pleasant. Go by bike if possible, and you won’t have any traffic or parking hassles.
No matter how packed it was, it was great to see droves of people out having a good time in the sunshine!
