Newark residents and visitors alike cannot speak about New Jersey attractions without mentioning the city’s beautiful Branch Brook Park. Located in the heart of Newark, NJ, Branch Brook Park has much to offer our car rental customers.
During the spring months, Branch Brook Park is postcard perfect as almost 4,000 cherry trees blossom. Consider arranging your trip to Newark so that you can be sure to attend the annual Cherry Blossom Festival. This event highlights the beauty of the park, but also offers special presentations about Japanese tradition and the history of the cherry blossom, food, fun, live music, and more.
While Branch Brook Park’s pride is its Cherry Blossom Festival, you can find many things to do at this New Jersey park all year. Open every day and free to the public, you can enjoy a leisurely stroll on the park’s pathways, or spend a few hours skating at the roller rink. You can usually find other activities happening, from live music to a pick-up baseball game.
Branch Brook Park is a great place to spend some time while visiting Newark. You can easily park your rental car near Branch Brook Park and enjoy some of the other nearby downtown attractions, including the Newark Museum, Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart, Prudential Arena, and more.
