This iconic urban park can work as a “migrant trap” in fall migration, with chances to see warblers and other birds up close. Explore an iconic urban park. This is the right time to discover fall migrants as they make their way south. Led by Dave Hall, Associate Naturalist
Branch Brook Park is distinguished by being the first county park to be opened for public use in the United States. It has been placed on both the New Jersey (1980) and National (1981) Registers of Historic Places.
Named for a branch brook that flowed through the valley into the Passaic River, the stream that remains, and much of the surrounding landscape, still retain a natural appearance. More than 4,000 cherry trees that blossom during April are greater both in variety and number than the famed Washington, D.C., display—the result of a 1927 gift from Mrs. Felix Fuld family. At its height the Cherry Blossom Festival attracts over 10,000 people a day.
Location: Meet at the Cherry Blossom Welcome Center, Park Avenue and Lake Street Newark, NJ 07104
COST: $10 members, $15 nonmembers.
