    Locations of kanzans will be summarized here. (Prunus Sato-zakura Group 'Kanzan'). For search purposes, I'll mention that this cultivar is often called 'Kwanzan'.

    With 11,000 Kanzan street trees in Vancouver, and more planted since that number was established, it shouldn't be necessary to list them here. Go outside at the end of April, walk two blocks and you'll see one. Or a street lined with them. I'm just trying here for representation from each neighbourhood that hasn't been listed yet. You can look at almost any neighbourhood blog to find some locations.

    Arbutus Ridge: 20th, running east from Puget Drive; also
    30th, east and west of MacKenzie, photos.
    33rd, east and west of MacKenzie, photos.

    3rd, from Semlin to Commercial - these were a 2009 Festival Favourite
    2nd, from Victoria to Commercial, then Semlin at Graveley looking north and south

    See the other postings in Mount Pleasant
    11th east of Yukon, on the map but not posted on the forums

    Beach Grove Park in Tsawwassen (Delta), next to Beach Grove Elementary School. See photos in Tsawwassen. I used the Festival Map application to submit a "new" location record for this tree. I'd like to see it as a dot on the map. I hope I did it right; the application says my new submission is "waiting for review".

    Yes, I get notified of all submissions and make sure we have a photo of the location or can otherwise confirm the ID before I approve them. You even attached the photo correctly, so that was easy. Just for the record, I don't approve the plums that get submitted, and if people enter their email address (not really necessary when they're scouts or forum users), then I let them know the outcome of the review.

    I had some question about the location. You said Tsawwassen, and we have a neighbourhood blog for Tsawwassen and Ladner, but you used the Delta neighbourhood in the submission. I've changed that to Tsawwassen to match the blog it's posted in, and I've added a link to the posting in the previous posting here.

    This is a timely posting. There are a few good 'Kanzan' locations not mentioned:

    Fairview: 7th from Hemlock east to Cambie and far beyond that, and also 8th from Oak to Cambie. See photos. Also Willow between 13th and 14th, see photos. And a pretty double row of Kanzan along Oak Street just in front of Vancouver General Hospital, see photos. And 3rd east of Burrard for two blocks, photos.

    Downtown: Beatty Walk, see photos; also groves in a park-like setting on both sides of National east of Quebec, see photos.

    [Edited] And some not timely additions:
    Renfrew-Collingwood: Spencer at Clive, one block, not forming an arch, see posting with photo of trees not in bloom.
