  • Sprawling park, with something to offer everyone. I can't think of a season where the park is not beautiful. It is well maintained and there is something to be said for watching soccer, baseball and cricket players engaging in the sport they love with their families close by. A bit crowded in the summertime, but it is not a park to be missed. I love living close to this park. It's a great place to take engagement photos, especially in the fall. When the cherry blossoms are in bloom, it is stunning. Check it out!

  • Branch Brook Park is a stunningly beautiful GEM in Newark. The Park has an amazing architecture that draws you further inward and makes you want to continue exploring it as if you haven't already been there. It is filled with activities, water, walkways, mounds and sport activities (tennis courts, and baseball, Basketball, soccer & footfall fields). The beautiful park starts out from Newark along I-280 and extends all the way into Bloomfield/Belleville. Simply amazing!

  • We have always enjoyed this park as it is very diverse. There is a big park that is gated for kids, pathways you walk along, and a pond where you can rent paddle boats. A little bit for everyone!

  • If you are looking for cherry blossoms in the month of March April near Jersey city this is an absolute place to visit. It has amazing views. It's got tons of things for the kids too. They have a fishing pond where there are tons of fishes. Beautiful spacious and very modern playground for kids. Lots of open space to have the most amazing picnic with your family. Go get your family pictures taken here.

  • Was here to attend the Essex County Cherry Blossom Festival. Though it was very cold/windy this time but the view of the cherry blossom trees made up for it. A well maintained park with ample parking , clean restrooms and lots of pink and white cherry blossom trees and plenty of spots to get your own moment/photos with them.. in some spots there were cherry blossom white and pink petals on the ground under the cherry blossom trees making it look like a blanket and giving it a fairy tale look and feel. Great alternate for those who cannot make it or want to avoid Washington DC trip for cherry blossom. You won't be disappointed.
