The park is huge. There is plenty of parking. The cherry blossom festival is held here every year. You'll get a lot of great pictures. There is a tennis court, baseball fields and lake.

My daughter is in an organization, that volunteers in the Garden at Branch Brook Park. It is an excellent park for the community. The Cherry Blossom Center has great activities for the entire family. One of Essex counties Gems.

You will want to visit the park and stop and probably picnic. The best time is during the blooming of the Cherry Blossoms.

This is a great place to visit for the photo opportunities, This is awesome during the springtime. The Cherry blossom festival is among the best around. Always crowded and parking is hard at times, but this place is awesome and beautiful.

There is a road that goes through the park and you can park on that same road. You’ll see the cherry blossoms on the sides of the entire road. If you don’t want to walk you can look at beautiful trees from the car.
