Most of the cherry blossoms are actually on the Belleville side of Branch Brook Park. The Newark side is like the trunk of the tree that blooms on the Belleville portion where there are fields of cherry blossoms and much more impressive older ones. Put Nanina’s in the Park in your GPS and go south from there.

After hearing over and over again how Branch Brook Park Newark has the most cherry blossom trees even more so than DC, I made it there this past weekend. It was quite disappointing as far as cherry blossoms are concerned. The Park is miles long and the trees are scattered about everywhere. And of course, you don't have the tidal basin and monument type backdrop.

Having said all that it was beautiful Park and the surrounding neighborhoods were really nice. Both my friend were surprised Newark had those kinds of neighborhoods.


Well of course...If Branch Brook Park had a tidal basin and a monument type backdrop, it would probably be - Washington DC, not Newark!!!


Branch Brook Park is pretty great. It doesn’t have the Tidal Basin and monuments, but the pond and basilica backdrop give a similarly “monumental” feel, no?
