Small and fine place among the business skyscapers in Newark. It looks pleasant when you take a short break during the workday and come there to chill out. Employees of park is really friendly and funny. You cand find a book corner and get a book/fresh newspaper to read.

I didn't find the park safe-- there were hardly any people and so I quickly walked across to the Starbucks on the other side.

This former tired old park has been redone and is now a very nice area in the middle of a busy business district. Plenty of benches, nice landscaping, magazine rack and visible security create a peaceful oasis for locals and visitors.

The hustle and bustle of Newark can be seen from the newly renovated park. Great views of the Down Town Business District.

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. Very similar to Bryant Park in NYC. They have put a lot of money into the park with the new buildings opening across the street. So many people... More

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
