Although small, Civic Center Park park has a couple extra benefits:
- It is right next to Newark library.
- It is viewing distance to railroad tracks (but not too close) where the Amtrak and Ace commuter trains pass several times a day
- It is next to Newark police station, so chances are high you will see police cars come in and out
There are bathrooms in the library, including a toddler toilet in the kid's area.
You can usually find a bench in the shade around the play area. There is also a grassy area nearby for playing ball or having a picnic.
Civic Center Park is located at 6300 Civic Terrace Avenue in Newark.
