This web site was designed by me as a labor of love for Branch Brook Park in Newark, NJ. The park hosts a beautiful annual Cherry Blossom Festival each year. This event showcases one of the most beautiful natural settings in the New York metropolitan area come spring. It has been a source of great pleasure to witness and photograph the beautiful cherry blossoms as they bloom each year.
This website won the About.com "Website of the Week" award and has attracted much favorable attention for the park as well! Not that it needs my promotion. The Annual Essex County Cherry Blossom Festival attracts visitors from all over the world. In fact, it has more cherry blossom trees on display than Washington D.C. I highly recommend visiting this amazing event come April. This website showcases photographs of past cherry blossom festivals I have taken over the past decade. Also, I use this website to highlight the events that are planned for the upcoming Cherry Blossom Festival.
Jean Kaiser, About.com's Web Design Guide said this about Branch Brook Park when it was awarded Website of the Week: "This week's selection was chosen for its clean, appealing, and user-friendly design. It's a joy to visit and use this site. The design is a perfect example of simplicity, consistency, ideal color selection, and ease of use. Be careful though, it may give you spring fever!"
