Nice clean small park in downtown Newark. Close to NJPAC, the Hahnes building and the new Prudential building. Quite active in the warmer weather with festivals, a merry go round, dance and fitness classes, games and other activities.

Military Park is a nice park to sit, relax, and eat a snack. It's only about 5-6 acres and is shaped like a triangle. While not big it's a good little place to escape the concrete etc of the city. There is a huge monument...More

Military park is right in the core of downtown Newark. Surrounded by Art Deco skyscrapers, this small green space is good for a rest. Good place for picnic or afternoon stroll.

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.

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 200 years old.
