Hanami is the Japanese custom of flower viewing. The transient splendor of trees in bloom inspires people to come together for festivals, picnics, and strolls beneath a canopy of petals.

Vision for the Hanami Line

In Japan and around the world, cherry blossom festivals represent the beautiful and transient nature of life. Imagine pale petals from cherry trees being carried by spring breezes. Imagine couples strolling and families picnicking beneath a billowy canopy of pink and white blossoms. Imagine a place of such intense beauty that admirers from around the world travel to Sacramento to experience it. That is our vision for Sakuramento and the Hanami Line.

Park Volunteer Service Day

Nuevo and Robertson Parks

Saturday, March 24 9:00A - 1:00P

This community volunteer day is focused on planting and maintaining trees in North Sacramento (District 2) to ensure that native trees and plant species remain an integral part of the urban forest in Del Paso Heights. This effort intends to increase the biodiversity of the park ecology at Nuevo and Robertson Parks by recruiting at least 50 volunteers that live in North Sacramento, District 2. All are welcome to attend and local residents of North Sacramento are highly encouraged to join the Del Paso Heights Growers' Alliance. Our goal is to plant at least 25 trees at Robertson Park, maintain at least 25 trees at Nuevo Park, and establish a native plant garden near the children’s playground.
