The 1,000-plus cherry trees that form a delicate pink canopy over the streets of Chevy Chase’s
Kenwood neighborhood are a magni;cent sight, typically peaking in late March or early April.
The Yoshino cherry trees (the same variety as most of the trees at the Tidal Basin in Washington,
D.C.) were planted in Kenwood in the 1930s and ’40s. Adjacent to the Kenwood Golf & Country
Club, the neighborhood is bordered by River Road, Little Falls Parkway and Goldsboro Road.
Parking is limited within Kenwood, so visitors often leave their cars in a nearby neighborhood.
Residents embrace visitors, but have one request to keep the trees healthy: no climbing, please.
