    Newark Waterfront

    Outdoor adventurers can take a stroll along Newark's Riverfront Park; the vibrant orange walkway offers fantastic views of the Passaic River. Summertime brings endless events to the park. Stretch with outdoor yoga, catch a movie under the stars, dance parties happen, or catch a boat tour or rent a kayak to explore more. Newark’s Riverfront Park is just steps away from the Ironbound, where you’ll find 175 Portuguese, Spanish and Brazilian restaurants and where Portugal Day Newark (June) and Brazilian Festival (September) happens. Check out our events calendar for the latest happenings.

    Visiting in summertime? What better way to spend the day than on the Passaic River. Embark on a two-hour tour along a 7-mile stretch of river, learn about the history of Newark, and enjoy the views.Tickets: $15 visitors or $5 for those living in Newark. For reservation information, email Newark Riverfront Revival or call Riverfront Coordinator Chris Caceres at (201) 563-2834 for more information.
