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.

Registration remains open for summer camps and outdoor programs. However, all other programs through April 30th, have been canceled. We will re-evaluate the status of canceled programs based on guidance from state and local health agencies and offices and re-open registration as soon as clearance has been given.
