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
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.
