Residents Flock to Kenwood for Glimpse of Cherry Blossoms

After much rain on Friday and Saturday, Montgomery County residents were ready for a reprieve. Sunday delivered with a sunny day, temperatures in the 60s and not a cloud in sight. For those who did not want to trek down to the Tidal Basin to see cherry blossoms, Bethesda’s Kenwood neighborhood offered a just-as- nice but closer option.

Police controlled vehicle traffic which made walking through the neighborhood less congested and more enjoyable according to many who showed up with babies and dogs in tow.

For years, Kenwood residents have complained about over congestion in their neighborhood during the peak bloom period.
