Cherry Blossom Park projected to open in Sacramento in 2023.
Sacramento’s Hanami Line will be located along the waterfront within walking distance from Old Sacramento, the SMUD Museum of Science and Curiosity, and future Railyards developments.
The city's Hanami Line will be at Robert Matsui Waterfront Park. It's a project through the Sacramento Tree Foundation that's within walking distance of Old Sacramento.
The Hanami Line is a new project in Sacramento, aiming to create the city's first cherry blossom park. The park broke ground recently and is expected to be completed by 2024. It seeks to combine Sacramento's reputation as the 'City of Trees' with the rich cultural heritage of the region along the Sacramento River.
The park is designed to accommodate various activities and traditions, including hanami, the Japanese tradition of gathering under blooming cherry trees to celebrate nature and life. It will offer year-round uses such as meditation, yoga, food festivals, art exhibitions, and music festivals.
The 1.5-acre park will be easily visible from Interstate 5 and will be within walking distance of The Railyards and the SMUD Museum of Science and Curiosity. It aims to honor Sacramento's history and create a connection with the cherry trees that bloom annually in Washington, D.C.
Some notable features of the Hanami Line park include the Matsuyama Dori walkway, which leads visitors from a lighted sculpture to wave-patterned pavers, guiding them towards Sacramento's Japanese sister city, Matsuyama. The park will also include four distinct mini forests with different designs, providing seating options for various events, and Japanese parasol-inspired shade structures for visitors to enjoy throughout the changing seasons.
