ESSEX COUNTY IN BLOOM
There are magnificent and historic gardens within the Essex County Park System that draw people from around the world. To introduce these natural treasures to photographers, the Essex County Division of Cultural and Historic Affairs has partnered with Unique Photo to present a variety of Nature Photography workshops to showcase Essex County in bloom.
The Essex County Park System holds a historic collection of Japanese cherry trees that bloom from mid-to-late April, creating a pink and white setting that is perfect for photos.
Essex County Branch Brook Park was conceived by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux in 1867, designed by the Olmsted Brothers firm between 1898 and 1938, and saw its first cherry tree planted in 1927 thanks to a generous gift from Caroline Bamberger Fuld.
The Park is part of the Essex County Park System—the first established county park system in the United States—and is listed on both the National and New Jersey State Registers of Historic Places.
Celebrate the arrival of spring by honing your photography skills in the fresh air at the Essex County Parks!
