Londoners can now enjoy the first buds of spring in Wembley as cherry blossoms flourish in the park. 

Visitors to the area will be able to enjoy the displays in busy Market Square near Brent Civic Centre.

Wembley Park Estates Team, which manages the trees, worked with landscape architects Macfarlane Associates to develop the walkway.  

They selected ‘Prunus avius ‘plena’, a blossom also known as ‘Double flowered wild Cherry’, to match the colour of Wembley Stadium’s iconic arch.

The white cherry blossom was cultivated specifically to flower around the time of the FA Cup Semi Finals. 

Planted in 2014, the Wembley Park cherry trees are placed underground in large pots, so the trees can be easily relocated without damage.
