Kirsikkapuisto (English: Cherry Tree Park, Swedish: Körsbärsträdsparken) opened in 2007[1] in the Roihuvuori district of Helsinki, and is part of the Roihuvuori green area.[2] The southern area has a fenced off dog park.[3] In the dog park are wooden statues of dogs and a tree with a cat in it. The city department that maintains these statues has now closed and the statues are being removed as they deteriorate.[4] There are about 150 Cherry trees in the park that were planted following sponsorship from the Japanese community in Helsinki.[5] In the Spring the Japanese festival of Hanami is celebrated when the trees blossom.[6][7]
