Yoshino Cherries At Central Park Reservoir

The 35 yoshino cherries located on the east side of the Central Park Reservoir were originally part of a gift from the Japanese government in 1912, which also included cherries for the Tidal Basin in Washington, D.C. The yoshino sherries are now a landmark for the many thousands who make their daily or weekly progress around the 1.6 mile Reservoir track.
