You’ll find cherry blossom trees planted all over Fisher’s Landing and East Vancouver in general. They are especially gorgeous on the streets running between 164th and 192nd south of Mill Plain.

Clark College near Downtown Vancouver has a Sakura Festival every year, that began in 2006. Over 25 years ago the City of Vancouver was given 100 Shirofugen cherry trees by our sister city in Joyo, Japan. They are a gift of friendship and planted at Clark College as a reminder of the enduring bonds between our region and Japan. The festivals that have been held since then are stunning and there’s always fantastic speakers and presentations. This year they are holding that festival virtually, but you can still visit the flowers in person and take a picnic to enjoy with you.
Take a stroll through Fort Vancouver and you’ll find beautiful cherry blossom trees all around. There are some gorgeous clusters around the East Barracks.
