The Big Picnic

The atmosphere was very festive for The Big Picnic at the Queen Elizabeth Park.  Hundreds of people gathered under cherry trees to enjoy a community picnic and watch musical performances while Akebono cherry petals quietly fell all around.

Whitcomb Cherry Petals are falling at Tea Swamp Park (Sofia/15th ave.)

I visited Tea Swamp Park (Sofia/15th ave.) to see the shower of petals coming from the Whitcomb cherry trees.

Whitcombs cherry trees are the first cherry trees to bloom in Vancouver, so they’re the first cherry trees to lose their petals.


Although you expect it, it’s always kind of sad to see the petals falling.

Hurry up and visit within the next 2-3 days. Whitcomb petals are falling quickly! Find a location near you using the VCBF Neighborhood map.
