The time is finally here!
According to the Park, “Okame cherry trees are the first cherry trees to blossom in spring, earlier than the more famous Yoshino and Kwanzan cherry trees.” These trees can currently be seen on the West Side of the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir, in the northern end of the Park closer to streets in the 90s.
