Like the majority of Vancouverites, we can’t get enough of the cherry blossom trees! We anticipate their arrival all year long as a sign that nicer days are in the forecast (once we get past two consecutive month of rain, of course) and once they blossom, these pretty pink petals flood social media! Here’s our list of the best cherry blossom photo ops in Vancouver!
12 Winona Park
Address: 7525 Columbia St
A pleasant park with seating areas and open fields, Winona Park on Yukon St. & West 59th Ave (Marpole hood) is well-lined with cherry blossom trees and ample photo ops. Tons of street parking.
If you look up #VanCherryBlossomFest on Instagram, your search will turn up countless photos taken at this upper-level Waterfront lookout!
Areas of interest:
West 8th and Trutch
Because Kits isn’t beautiful enough already. Add some magnificent cherry blossom trees and it’s pretty much the perfect neighbourhood. Our favourite area to snap a pic? At the top of Cypress Street on West 4th looking down at Kits Beach!
9 David Lam Park
Address: 1300 Pacific Blvd
A picture speaks a thousand words and the image below snapped at David Lam Park in Yaletown has us feeling some kind of way…
8 Vanier Park
Address: 1000 Chestnut St
With a backdrop like the one at Vanier Park in Kitsilano, you’re much pretty guaranteed a flawless image.
7 VanDusen Botanical Garden
Address: 5251 Oak St
Majestic gardens, perfectly manicured landscapes, a great cafe and this spring, all of the cherry blossoms, it’s no wonder VanDusen is so popular!
6 Lower Lonsdale
Get away from the city, pick up a few local goods and snap a few shots of the gorgeous cherry blossoms in North Vancouver!
5 Stanley Park
Areas of interest:
Stanley Park is stunning all year-round (#BestParkInTheWorld) and cherry blossom season is no exception! Rent a bike, and take in the beauty!
4 Burrard Skytrain Station
Address: 635 Burrard St
Each year, the Burrard Skytrain Station concourse becomes enveloped in a sea of pink! One of the most cherry blossom populated areas in Vancouver!
3 Coal Harbour
Areas of interest: Coal Harbour Quay
For the perfect #ootd pictures, take a scenic stroll over to Coal Harbour where you’ll be greeted by a cloud of pink. Make sure to stop and enjoy a coffee at one of the cute cafes along the way!
2 West End
Areas of interest: Broughton and Nelson St
We like to refer to the West End as the ‘Best End’ and this is especially true during cherry blossom season where nearly every street is lined with trees.

This 130-acre park is what dreams are made.
