Every tree has a name
The cherry trees in the blossom park were donated to the municipality of Amstelveen in 2000 by the Japanese Women's Club. Every tree in the symmetrical park has a name: 200 trees have a Japanese female name, 200 trees have a Dutch female name. Flowers and nature have a symbolic meaning in Japan.
