NDD Fitness Club
The NDD Fitness Club (Enhanced NDD Walking Club) is a great way to keep fit and meet downtown neighbors, while also providing a chance to see the beautiful architecture, horticulture, and other sights the downtown has to offer.
NDD Downtown Market
As Spring turns into Summer we are excited to launch back into the annual NDD Downtown Market. This year the NDD is celebrating 20 years of bringing fellow Newarkers together with fresh food, local vendors, and live music.
NDD Parklet Program
In an effort to increase pedestrian traffic and provide safe outdoor experiences that respect COVID-19 guidelines, the NDD offers both traditional wooden structures and pop-up parklets. All parklets are fully insured by the NDD. If conditions allow, the parklets are also furnished with shade structures.
Clubs & Programs
How can the NDD help you get fit over the summer? What are some of the Hidden Gems in Downtown Newark?
Creating public spaces that promote people’s health, happiness, and well-being is an important goal in an urban environment. In Downtown Newark, the NDD’s placemaking programs include parklets and a pedestrian mall during the summer.
Maintenance and Operations
The NDD’s Ambassador program is iconic and their bright yellow and black uniforms are readily recognizable throughout the Downtown. NDD Ambassadors patrol the District’s sidewalks and streets and keep them free of litter, attend to Downtown walkways, assist pedestrians, and interact with local businesses and stakeholders.
How does the NDD participate in Public Art programs that add uniqueness to the community and invigorate public spaces?
NDD Green Initiatives
The NDD has several recycling programs in place in the Downtown area.
