New Jersey Sketchers at Branch Brook Park
Welcome NJ Sketchers to the Urban Sketchers Family!!
Join us on April 7, 2022 for our first New Jersey gathering in Branch Brook Park to sketch the cherry blossoms.
Branch Brook Park meanders from the north end of Newark and up into Bellville. Designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, this park has the largest collection of cherry trees in the NY Metro area....and they are all in bloom, right now! Join us as we sketch the scenes across the Branch Brook Lake with the Basilica of the Sacred Heart in the background. Or meander along the park walkways and find the spot that rings true for you.
We will meet at the south end of the park in the area called Prudential Grove on the west side of the lake. The area is called Prudential Grove. You can park along the shoulder of the internal Park Drive. If you take public transit, get off the Light Rail at the Park Ave station. It is a short walk to the meeting location.
