Central Park



Suggested Ages: All, Adult Friendly

Ranging from deep magenta to pale pink to crisp white, Central Park’s cherry trees are a must-see in spring. Their blossoms are beautiful, but these flowers are fleeting—and with this year’s warm winter, they’re blooming much earlier than usual.

Use this interactive map to track in real-time where the cherry blossoms have peaked in the Park – different varieties blossom at different times. Currently an impressive collection of Higan cherry trees with slightly transparent white-to-pink flowers are blooming at the southwest corner of the Great Lawn.
