  • This is a great local park to sit and enjoy some fresh air. There aren't big walking paths or activities. Just a nice place to sit if you're in the area.  more »
  • Neat park in the center of Newark City that used to be a military training ground, hence its name. It has a few notable landmarks, such as a sculpture of JFK and an Episcopal church that is more than ...  more »
  • There are many parks in Newark, but this is still one of the nicer ones: small but well done, right in the center of downtown.

  • Military Park really is a great site! After the June 2014 renovation it is even more beautiful than ever. It is a great place to relax and admire the art. It is clean and safe during the day. A word of caution, please don't hang around here after dark.
  • Military Park was an oasis in a desert for me when I was homeless staying in the YMCA in Newark. Almost everyday I would take time to go to Military Park and meet my fiance and daughter to share either lunch or dinner or catch a movie. There are also plenty of programs and things going on in Military Park like concerts, yoga, martial arts, and so many others that it's too much to name. Military Park brought me great joy and happiness during the hard time of being homeless.
  • Cool park on Broad St. Well maintained and clean, nice to relax and hang out at. There's a good view of the Newark skyline from here as well. A new restaurant opened in Military Park called Burg recently if you're feeling hungry. Aside from that, not much going on but this is exactly what you should expect from a park anyway. I usually make a quick stop here whenever I'm in Newark just to unwind for a bit.
  • Beautiful park with plenty of places to sit and enjoy the fresh air. Also has ping pong tables, merry go round, burger joint, and library.
  • This is a great little park near the performing arts theater and area hotels. The monument in the center of the park is impressive. There is something here for everyone! Also, a burger joint in the park.
