Beautiful and big park with a lake. Nice scenery to see. It also has cherry blossoms so if you go during April and May you will get treated with seeing these beautiful cherry blossoms trees.

Beautiful cherry blossoms. We took our bikes from West Orange. Saw the mad house traffic. Leave a few hours to walk around this expansive park.

Wonderful park, safe, well cared for and quiet. Many different areas from play (soccer, baseball, roller skating) to walking, biking and quiet contemplation. Recommended highly, hope they will put in a dog area soon.

My wife and I went to see the Cherry Blossom in May. We saw all the beautiful flowers and experience the view of other folks taking pictures.

Branch Brook Park has the largest collection of Cherry Blossoms in the US. That’s the beautiful place where my friends and I go for our power walks and where I take mom on her wheelchair to enjoy nature.

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.
