  • This is the most magical park during cherry blossom season. They have more cherry blossom trees than Washington DC. The traffic moves slowly as everyone is looking at the trees so just get there early...  more »
  • This is a really big park and has a Cherry Blossom festival every year. I would go just for that... Nearby is Forest Hill neighborhood, which has many historic mansions.  more »
  • My wife and I visited the park on a beautiful evening when the cherry blossoms are in bloom. It gets extremely crowded and good weather with plenty of basketball games and other things going on.  more »

  • If the blossoms cooperate, my friends go here to watch them. It is gorgeous and free! Ofc, cherry blossoms are, as my friend likes to say, "beautiful jerks" so watch the cherry blossom cam before you make the trip!
  • Went there for the cherry blossoms thing. Place was a zoo. Crazy parking situations. Crowded and tiny playground. Trails are great in some places and terrible in others. Other wise beautiful park
  • Been here last week.There's few people ,so there's a lot of spot to park. (its Holy Week remember) Disappointed, cherry blossoms are gone. Anyway me and my husband stroll from the Cathedral down to the Lake and around the Park. It was a beautiful day and we had a wonderful time. Amazing Park not to take photos! Sorry, pictures are not upload yet!
  • This is a oasis in the middle of... well... newark. It's a lovely park but can get crowded and loud. It's most known for its cherry blossoms, but beware it draws an even bigger crowd than usual. if you visit here you must also visit the basilica, which you can't not notice from the park.
  • This park was the selling point for me when I move to Newark. It is so beautiful. And the Cherry blossom trees are amazing. Going for walks is gorgeous and I love it.
