Listen: Sacramento Tree Foundation executive director Jessica Sanders
Big changes are coming to a park located just north of downtown Sacramento along the Sacramento River. The current lawn overlooking the waterfront will be transformed into a lovely grove of cherry trees, complete with an artistic walkway, grassy areas, benches, and public art – perfect for public gatherings and individual enjoyment.
The Hanami Line will combine Sacramento’s love of trees with the rich cultural heritage of this region. In cities across the world, people celebrate the arrival of spring by gathering with loved ones under the cherry blossoms. In Japan, this tradition is known as hanami and draws thousands of families to picnic, play, and relax in its parks
. The Hanami Line is expected to open in 2023.
