Since the park has re-open the changes are great! Chess, yoga, a mobile library, Jazz, Poetry and other activities are happening! And there's a play area for the KIDS!

Need to get rid of reviews before June 2014. Since its reopening recently after a wonderful renovation, Military Park is a delightful oasis and an inspiring park for individuals and families. Visit and soak up the clean, fresh and engaging atmosphere. Landscaping is top notch. It is truly a phenomenal park in the center of the city.

Previous Military Park has always been a place to walk through on the way to NJPAC or the Historical society. Now its a destination unto itself. Clean, pedestrian friendly, and beautiful, I am excited to visit more often. From the reading room (my new favorite part) to the ping ping tables to the yoga classes and line dancing, this space...

The park is not maintained well. There is bird poo all over the benches and trash on the grass. there are no fences either and there is too much traffic around the park.

Newark is doing an amazing job cleaning up the area. But the isn't your typical park. Made mostly of concrete one monument and a bit unsafe

I have gone thru this park 100 times and never really noticed it. Its not really that impressive. To me its just a park in between two roads with a statue in it. I would not make a special trip to see this.

If you have some extra time to kill in the area would I bother going over to this place. I'm a local & nobody I know goes anywhere near that park.
