CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - “Blossom lane” at Brookside Reservation is in full bloom.

The Yoshino cherry trees, first planted in the 1990s were a gift from the Japanese Association of Northeast Ohio to the citizens of Cleveland.

The gift was in appreciation to the American people for their friendship.

The gift of more than 100 trees were planted at the Brookside Reservation, part of the Cleveland Metroparks since 1993.
