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.
