Come down to see the beautiful Cherry Blossom trees bloom in Lake Balboa Park. There are over 2,000 Cherry Blossom trees, when they are in bloom the lake becomes a spectacular site.

Bring a bento box and blanket and have a nice picnic with your friends and family. Once you are done eating there is a beautiful park with a huge duck pond where the Cherry Blossom Trees border. There is also a huge play area with swings and slides for the kids.

*Don't forget your camera.

The number one question is always when will the Cherry Bloosom trees bloom?
It's hard to predict when the Cherry blossom trees will bloom. in 2009 all the trees bloomed at the same time, in the last few years you will have trees blooming at different times. Since the park may be a long drive for most of us, here are the tips we use:
1) Call the park and ask them: (818) 756-9743

2) The Lake Balboa web site usually posts photos each week, so you can get a better idea.
