Thanks to warm and sunny weather, tree blossoms have been opening at a rapid clip, and that includes those on Arlington’s cherry blossom trees.

Blossom seekers can enjoy the bloom by visiting some of the local sites with cherry tree clusters, including:

  • Long Bridge Park in Crystal City (475 Long Bridge Drive)
  • Quincy Park in Virginia Square (1021 N. Quincy Street)
  • Welburn Square in Ballston (901 N. Taylor Street)

Arlington has a few events and activities planned coinciding with blossom season, including a pop-up market with local vendors at Metropolitan Park in Pentagon City and live music at the Crystal City Water Park.
