Went there to see cherry blossom , beautiful trees with flowers, it’s not in full peak but good enough to enjoy. Parking is little bit disappointed, need to go around whole park to find it, plus is that you can still watch trees from car.

If this is the park near the Basilica, then it looked to be a very nice park to visit but I was on foot from Newark and didn't spend long there.
