Cherry Blossoms at Gucun Park

Cherry Blossoms at Gucun Park

It’s officially spring! Trees and flowers are blooming everywhere and it’s finally getting warm again. On Sunday, it was sunny and the sky was blue, so while Thorben played archery, I headed to Gucun Park with friends to see some cherry blossoms.

Gucun park is a big park, pretty far away from the city center. It took me about an hour each way but it was so worth it because they have the most cherry blossoms of any park in Shanghai. I read somewhere they have more than 12,000 cherry trees! I don’t know how much of it we covered because the park is huge, but in any case, it was just a sea of blossoms, truly stunning. Last weekend, the trees were in full bloom, so it was really busy there, but with some strategic photo taking, you can barely tell 😉
