According to Park lore, 1,000 Japanese Cherry blossom trees were given to the city as a gift to Mayor Russell Wilson in the 1930’s. Since then, Cincinnati Parks staff have planted additional trees to maintain the grove’s majestic character. In 2008 the Japan America Society planted 121 Somei Yoshino Trees in the grove at Ault Park.

Here are 2 Ways to See Cherry Blossom Trees

1) See Map image of the area to look for

2) Where to find the Cherry Blossom Trees on Google Maps?

As you enter Ault Park on Observatory Road, you will find Kwanzan Cherry tree grove on the hillside slopes planted by the Parks team. You continue further and you will find the Japanese Cherry blossom tree grove, located at the park intersection of Observatory Road and Observatory Circle. This site is near the Ault Park Commons. This has become a popular attraction for easel painters and family photos celebrating the coming of spring.

Located in the neighborhood of Mt. Lookout, Ault Park is one of Southwest Ohio’s premier regional parks. The park provides picnic facilities, nature trails, children’s play areas, and lookout points to view the majestic Ohio River. Ault Park adds to its attractions with a splendid pavilion that provides a picturesque backdrop that makes it a popular venue for weddings and private parties. Ault Park also features gorgeous gardens; including Cherry Blossom Tree groves that blossom in pink and white blooms in March and April, the Brumm and Rose gardens, that can be reserved to for a beautiful wedding ceremony, Adopt-A-Garden, and a butterfly garden. At roughly 224 acres, Ault Park also is one of the best parks in the city in which to observe the ancient geology of Cincinnati. Ault Park is a host site for events such as the Concours d’ Elegance Car Show, summer dances, and a community July 4th celebration.
