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.

The schedule for programs and events are all subject to change or cancel based on any changes to COVID-19 state and local mandates. The safety of the participants and their families, spectators and staff is our #1 priority as we move forward in planning for our programs. We will continue to monitor the situation and reevaluate the status of our programs. We will make changes as needed based on the guidance from state and local agencies and the school district. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding!
