Military Park in Newark has had quite the makeover. It now has ping pong tables, a reading room, all new landscaping and the whole park has been refreshed and open for business.

Military park is a small green area in the downtown section of Newark. It is not bucolic, or a place to take a walk or enjoy nature. There are benches to wait for a bus.

I am so old, I remember Robert Kennedy giving a speech in the park. If you are an Ingress player it is a great mission place

Great Spring, Summer and early Autumn hangout for tasty farmers' market offerings or for purchasing fresh produce. Usually a live local band playing jazz, blues or rhythmn and blues standards. Umbrella-shaded tables and seating make this an enjoyable place to enjoy lunch in nice weather

The park has been around for a long time. Now it has received a facelift. The atmosphere is great, quiet and table with umbrellas set up to enjoy your lunch withoutthe sun glare which you can purchase from many restaurants in the area. Nice place to relax your thoughts too.
