Cherry Blossom Season in the Dayton Region

Posted on April 19, 2024 at 2:08 pm

Washington DC shows off the beauty of their Cherry Blossoms at this time every year, but we here in Dayton also have Cherry Blossoms a week after the ones in DC.

These photos were taken at Carillon Park on March 29th. To date, Operation 2000 Cherry Trees has planted 83 cherry trees in this park. In addition, you will find cherry blossoms nearby in the medium of South Patterson Blvd. south of Stewart Street and near the GE Aviation EPISCenter as well. These trees were planted in 2013 and 2014, and are nearly 16 years old. Can you visualize them in 10 more years?

Across town, at the National Museum of the US Air Force, we have planted 150 cherry trees and another 50 across Springfield Street.  

Someday we can proudly say Dayton is “The Cherry Blossom Capital of Interior.”  This is not a prediction; it is a promise! To date, we have planted 1450 cherry trees in the Miami Valley region and are well on way to our ultimate goal of 2000.

Thank you for your continued support!
