The blossoms are back in Brampton and are bringing some colour to the city a bit earlier than usual this year.

The Sakura trees in Brampton’s Joyce Archdekin Park have begun to bloom, offering one of the least crowded spots in the GTA to take in the white and pink blooms.

Sakura trees across Ontario bloom every spring, and taking in the blooms has become an annual pastime for residents across the GTA with thousands flocking to parks to enjoy the short-lived season.

Sakura trees need a minimum of 15 C to fully bloom and last year the Sakuras in Joyce Archdekin Park reached peak bloom in early May. But a stretch of above-average temperatures earlier in April has led to the trees blooming earlier this year according to Sakura Watch – a website that monitors the blooms in Toronto.

“Don’t miss the chance to witness this enchanting sight before it’s too late,” the City said on Twitter.

Brampton residents will need to act fast to enjoy the cherry blossoms as the season only lasts for approximately a week to 10 days.

Toronto’s High Park tends to get the most attention during cherry blossom season, but there are other blooms in the Region of Peel for you to take in including Mississauga’s Kariya Park.

Named after Mississauga’s sister city in Japan, Kariya Park offers a quiet escape to a Japanese garden and a small complement of cherry blossoms.
