  • This Park is one of the few attractions that have Newark, and probably because it is located to the North of the city, and in fact, the Park is shared with other neighboring towns. The Park is famous for cherry festival, when they bloom in spring. In addition, the place is quite frequented by families and people who like to run and spend some time in "outdoors".

  • You would be shocked Newark has parks like this. This park was designed by the same person who designed the central park in NYC. It's awesome to walk and exercise. Also just to hang out in a beautiful...  more »

  • This park is amazing for families. the 2.2 mile loop is great. So many places and corners to explore. of course, Cherry Blossoms everywhere. the pictures I added. Fall season. =D its beautiful all year round. Even where its full of snow.
  • Deer, Red Hawks, Ground Hogs, Trout, Bass, Catfish, Turtles, Ducks, Geese, Squirrels Joggers, Bikers, Skaters, Gym & Military Members are all here...smiling. Come for the Fireworks, stay for a Movie invite a friend to walk between the Cherry Blossoms. Watch Cricket and Soccer ALL day. Everyone on the 2 mile challenge looks after each other. Thanks to the Heller & Ballentine Family, those who donated benches and upgraded the turf, installed equipment and created disability access. You can truly heal here..all day and relive your youth. Best kept secret ever.
  • Beautiful, peaceful, and relaxing in the morning. Lovely in April and May when the Cherry Blossom trees bloom. Lots of visitors during that time so it does become over crowded but it's great to see so many people. I love it!
  • We chose the perfect weekend to visit their five thousand cherry trees All In Cherry Trees were in bloom. There is a nice drive through the park, but to get the full effect, you really should take a walk through the gardens and the groves of trees.
  • I mean it's good ol branch brook park. For those newark outsiders , the Essex County sheriff's keep it decently guarded so no worries. With that just don't stay out wayyyy too late. The park is massive with tons to do though , including baseball fields , fishing areas , a roller skating rink.
