Youth need parks, not iPads. Health risks of youth in small-town Newark are more than double and sometimes triple than that of its neighboring city. With record development, trends indicate that Newark's park acreage will soon be significantly below the national standard.
Newark Parks Foundation will address local government and community groups to propose new gathering places within existing spaces, including a skatepark, dog park, and bike park.
