Parks and Recreation


Welcome to the City of Newark Parks and Recreation Department. We provide comprehensive Park and Recreation programs, facilities, and services that assist in making Newark a Healthy Community.

We strive to preserve, enhance, and protect our parks and open spaces while maintaining a vision for the future. While you’re here, view our parks map and plan a visit to one of our 34 parks, 17 miles of trails and over 650 acres of parkland and open space.

Due to current restrictions with local and state mandates from the coronavirus, the schedule for camps, programs and events are all subject to change. The safety of the participants and their families, spectators and staff is our #1 priority as we move forward in planning for the summer. We will continue to monitor the situation and reevaluate the status of our summer programs based on the guidance from state and local agencies and make changes as needed. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding!
