Vancouver’s Pink Lining

We always know spring is in full swing when the side streets of Robson Street become lightly dusted in pink. That’s right, Vancouver has 40 000 ornamental cherry trees. Their petals are the “pink” lining of Vancouver's wonderfully diverse seasons.

The Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival (VCBF) has arranged a variety of activities highlighting Vancouver’s cherry blossoms’ history and beauty. Don’t have time to catch the festival? That’s ok, take a stroll along Haro Street (see photo below,) just one block over from Robson to see what all our excitement is about! While you’re there, you might also enjoy the gardens in the roundabouts that are maintained by local residents.
