  • Until yesterday, I had never paid any attention to this hidden jewel of New Jersey. But now, after today's trip, I am a fan. Until yesterday, I was always thinking of paying a visit to Washington, DC during the spring to give my family a glimpse of the Cherry blossoms. No more after today's visit to this place. The place is beautiful during this time of the year. The Cherry blossoms are in full bloom. There are thousands of people posting a visit and the place is full of activities in addition to all the natural beauty spread across all the 300+ acres of the park. It is certainly worth a visit during spring. I am happy!
  • This park is huge and one of my favorite places to visit during the Spring because of the cherry blossom festival. It's a gorgeous place to walk around and take pictures. Highly recommend visiting if your nearby the area! The weekends during this time gets pretty busy so I recommend going during the week to beat the crowds!
