This plaza located at the end of Hornby street (between Hastings and Cordova) is on my favorite locations to view Akebono cherry trees Downtown.
If you didn’t bring your picnic, you can stop at Mink Chocolates Cafe (or one of the other eateries) to have tea or coffee while you look at the flowers outside.
It’s close to the waterfront, so you can take pictures of the blossoms with some historic Downtown buildings.
The Akebono cherry trees are in full bloom downtown and in the West-End. Join our Cherry Tree Talk and Walk this Saturday March 12 2016 1.30-3.30pm with Wendy Culter.
