3 Reasons my Family Loves Newport Green Park

 

  • Newport Green Park is a short walk to Hoboken (entering through the train station).  Along the way there are free viewfinders to gaze across the Hudson, and educational signs teaching visitors about wildlife along the waterfront.  The walkway offers a great opportunity to get some exercise and wander into Hoboken for lunch.

 

  • The playground structures were top notch!  A couple of them had us wondering how they were to be used – logic coming into play on a playground!  My kids were spinning, swinging and climbing in new and unique ways.  Older kids will stay interested, and the playground offers the wider.

 

  • Newport Green Park lets you get wet and get sandy in the middle of the city!  There’s a good size sprinkler playground, a smaller sandbox/beach play area, and a beach complete with lounge chairs for parents to take a load off and enjoy the view.
