When Hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey last year, the cherry blossoms lost their colorful leaves too soon, so there was no autumn magic in the park. This October fall is back at Branch Brook Park as we are already starting to see some cherry blossoms in full fall foliage while others are just beginning to change. Visiting the park in late October or in November and seeing the golden, orange or red leaves of the cherry blossom trees is a worthwhile experience. Your trip to the park will be tranquil since the cherry blossoms in the fall do not attract as many visitors as they do in the spring when they are blooming.
All across America, the leaves are changing into vibrant colors. Did you ever wonder why the leaves change colors in the autumn? The process is a scientific one. Since there is not enough light or water for photosynthesis in the winter, the trees will live off the food that they stored in the summer. As a result of no longer producing food, the green chlorophyll vanishes from the leaves. After the green colors are gone from the leaves, they turn into the lively fall colors of gold, orange, red or purple. The trees give us one last colorful display before they finally rest in the winter.
If you love fall, the best place to visit in Newark, New Jersey is Branch Brook Park. Here you will see the wonders of autumn as you observe the golden, orange or red foliage of the cherry blossoms. All the colorful leaves covering the grass at the park give the grounds a fall effect. When nature lovers visit Branch Brook Park in autumn, they will have an unforgettable experience.
