Revdeveloped park! It looks fantastic! There are chairs and tables as well as benches readily available. There are a couple of nice statues too. Very relaxing.

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.

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...
