For anyone who hasn't visited the Kenwood neighborhood during cherry blossom season, you're in for a treat. The gracious streets are lined on each side with 100+ year old cherry trees, often creating a feeling like walking through fluttering pink tunnels. The peak bloooming might be over by April 7, but then it becomes like a soft pink "snowfall" as the petals drift down. Neighborhood kids sell bad lemonade, brownies and dog biscuits, the ice cream truck does roaring business and generally everyone strolls around admiring the trees and the beautiful houses. Bring your camera!!
We'll meet at the grassy traffic circle at the intersection of Brookside Drive and Kenwood Ave. Give yourself extra time to find a parking space (street parking available on most of the side streets but you might not find a spot right away).
A sunny day makes it perfect, so if it's raining on Saturday we'll meet on Sunday at the same time (3 PM). If the weather is iffy on Saturday, check the website or send me an email or cellphone number and I'll send you a message by 12 noon.
This is definitely a leashed walk as there will be lots of people and slow-driving cars.
