* Worth going, but RSVP not opened up for this group (due to irrelevance). For EPI-Net, RSVP is only available at

Toronto Young Professionals & Entrepreneurs (TYPE) (

* We typically have only one weekend for cherry trees to be in full blossom--DON'T MISS OUT or wait for next year!!

I'll be watching out for the best timing to go for our group members^^



1. Prediction for peak bloom: (somewhere between) May 16-22.

Weather forecast (for this Saturday, May 17): "Partly Cloudy", Precipitation: 0%.

2. Blossoms this Monday (May 12):

Many of the trees are blooming today. It's a great time to visit any day now. Full bloom is not for another few days but due to lots of rain in the forecast it's best to visit the park any time this week whenever it's not raining. Will the trees still be blooming for the long weekend? Yes -barring any major storm during the week.



1: The date "May 17 (Saturday)" is tentative, but most likely we are not going to change anymore. I'll keep checking the updates for the blossom and weather. (Note that the cherry blossoms typically last a week or so.)

2. I'll post my mobile number below as a comment so that you can find the group or get assistance when needed.

3. Volunteers and I will be there to co-host this event. There's no guided tour on May 17 (from the High Park Nature Centre).



1:30 pm: Meet and Greet

1:45 pm: The walk #1 + photo taking begin, for a couple of hours

3:00 pm: Gather under a cherry tree or at the restaurant again.

To find us, volunteers and I will be at the benches outside the Grenadier Restaurant at 1:30 pm and under a cherry tree or in the same restaurant again around 3 pm (Center of High Park). If you face the restaurant, the benches are on the left hand side across from the restaurant.

I will post a comment below with my cell phone number in case anyone needs to text/call me for assistance or to find the group.

Note 1: It may be very hard to park inside the park (near the restaurant). Please be prepared to park outside and walk for 15 minutes to the restaurant.

Note 2: The restaurant will have very long lines that day (even for the lady's room). You may bring something for yourself (if its not too heavy for you) and sit under a cherry tree for picnic.
