Branch Brook park was one of the first parks many Italian, Irish, Polish and German immigrants called home when they settled in North Newark. Cherry Blossom festival in April brings back these generations. An award winning designers from Central Park era. Visit with care. The neighborhood around is changing, use care and common sense.

Enjoy walking in the park, skating in the rink, or working out, Branch Brook Park has a little bit of everything. You also can see the Cathedral from this park.

Branchbrook Park stretches from Newark to Belleuvue. I will say the end near Clifton Ave can be very dirty and at times dangerous. I was robbed having my jewelry... More

Great place to go for a walk with your kids, specially now that they added swings! Go visit anytime! A little bit busy when they have Cherry Blossom Festival going but worth the trip.
