The Cornwall Park cherry blossom in flower this Spring.
The cherry trees in Cornwall Park produce a spectacular display of flowers for a month each spring. Located just near the main car park, off Pohutukawa Drive, they are a very popular attraction in the Park. There are two main varieties: 'Awanui' (Prunus xtedoensis) make up the two group plantings and flower first, while the 'Accolade' (Prunus sargentii x Prunus subhirtella) line the pathway leading from the pedestrian crossing on Pohutukawa Drive up to the Poplar Steps.
