More Info →Cherry trees in blossom, Victoria Esplanade

Development began on the Victoria Esplanade, named to mark Queen Victoria's 60th jubilee, in 1897. Cherry blossom trees were first planted in the 1920s, and became a feature of the gardens. Hundreds of people came to view them each year when in blossom, and special trains ran from Wellington to bring sightseers.
