Best Places to See Cherry Blossoms This Spring


Hands down, one of the prettiest times to visit Vancouver’s North Shore is Cherry Blossom season, typically early March to late April, when nature paints the Shore pastel pink. Here are six places to catch this spectacular show on Vancouver’s North Shore. 


Waterfront Park

Just a few minute’s stroll from the Lonsdale Quay SeaBus Station, Waterfront Park is a collection of trails that meander through rolling green grass and trees awash in pink. Adding to the beautiful vista are sweeping views of downtown Vancouver just across the inlet.

Ambleside Beach

Immerse yourself in pink against a backdrop of blue along Ambleside Beach next to the ocean. Walk through a charming community of artisans, artists and creators, plus waterfront eateries to indulge in, such as Thierry Ambleside for fresh-made sandwiches and chocolate treats, or OEB Breakfast Co. for all-day award-winning brunch.

Lower Lonsdale

Also known as The Shipyards District, this waterfront neighbourhood is a jewel in the North Shore crown with a bounty of restaurants, shops and outdoor gathering spaces to complement the iconic Quay Market and Food Hall, dotted everywhere with blossoming trees. Fancy more colours? Stay for the incredible sunsets over the pier.

Panorama Park 

Venture further onto the North Shore to enchanting Deep Cove to stroll under the trees in Panorama Park, with its sweeping views of the pristine waters of Indian Arm. Go blossom photo-hunting along 1.8 km of trails and scroll through your treasures over a treat at the many cafes and restaurants in the village.

Park Royal

If being around all that pretty makes you want to find a little something pretty for yourself, indulge in a trip to Park Royal Shopping Centre. You don’t even need to sacrifice that fresh North Shore air while you shop through Park Royal Village, an outdoor mall full of quaint local shops, best-in-class stores and restaurants.
