I returned and took a few more photos. I now see it’s a tree, not a vine. Also, I walked all the way around the park’s lake and did not see another tree like it. I too think it’s pear tree.

Its always best to take photos of different parts of a plant to help with the ID.

It was on edge of the woods, opening up to a walking path between the woods and lake. It was among a lot of pines, and there were no others blossoming trees near it. I did not get a good look at the tree itself; but the location of the blossoms were about 4'-8' from the ground. At the time, I had a fleeting thought of a parasitic vine; but now I think it might have been a misplaced tree - perhaps its seed found its way there by birds.

Looks like ornamental pear (Pyrus calleryana). Can you describe the tree?
