Mulberry Commons, downtown Newark’s newest park, is the proposed development of three (3) acres of open space. The proposed park will be located between Mulberry Street and McCarter Highway, over the Northeast Corridor, down to Peter Francisco Park, with connections to Penn Station.
The park is made possible through a public-private partnership between the City of Newark, the Newark Community and Economic Development Corporation, the Newark Downtown District, Edison Properties, J&L Companies, Inc., and the Prudential Center. Sage and Coombe Architects is the project lead for the design of the park, and Supermass Studio is the landscape architect.
Upon completion of the park, NDD will be the entity responsible for maintenance, operations, and programming.
