When the sun is out and summer rolls around, NDD Parklets are open! NDD Parklets are free to everyone from May to October to sit, relax, and enjoy some open space so come check them out. 

The NDD Parklet program aims to provide more open spaces and encourage walkability within the Downtown. They are an economical solution to the need for wider sidewalks as they convert curbside parking spaces into vibrant community spaces. For businesses, Parklets are a way to increase foot traffic and provide patrons with greater access to stores and services in Downtown Newark. 

If you are a Downtown business, organization, or property owner and are interested in having a Parklet near your establishment, please contact Urban Planner Mbacke N. Faye at
