Fun In The Sun At Newport
Summer is finally here! That means hot weather, longer days and more free time for the youngsters. At Newport, we have plenty of activities and public spaces to entertain your family and friends. Once you've checked Newport off your list, explore the rest of Jersey City, which has multiple restaurants and establishments that make the perfect memory-making destinations. So, whip out your calendar and get planning. You have one fun summer ahead!
One of the most popular spots this summer at Newport will be the Urban Newport Beach. Grab an Adirondack chair, bury your feet in the sand and soak up some rays. It's the perfect place for some light reading or to catch up with friends. Have little ones? Bring your favorite beach toys and build a sandcastle.
Right next to Newport Beach is Newport Green! This is the perfect destination for a picnic, flag football game, or a spot to do a crossword in the shade. What's great about Newport Green is that it's a blank (and green!) canvas. This open field can be made you own! Take a nap, enjoy a lawn game, have a picnic, or energize with a workout. It's #YourNewport Green!
3. Newport Playgrounds & Newport Playport
With multiple playgrounds throughout Newport, your child will never get bored at our playgrounds! With all kinds of amusements, our playgrounds are great for keeping your little ones entertained while you take it easy. Our playgrounds have rock-climbing walls, slides, swings, and more.
Our best playground for warmer weather is absolutely our water park! The Newport Playport offers numerous water features in the warmer months. Your child can run through sprinklers, dodge water dumping buckets, or beat our small obstacle courses, all while keeping cool.
Nestled between Newport Green and Newport Beach sits the Newport Carousel! Buy your tickets at our bright red ticket booth and go for a ride, no matter your age.
Take a stroll on the boardwalk and feel the breeze off the Hudson River as you view the New York City skyline. The waterfront is the perfect backdrop for all kinds of physical activities like biking, jogging or even rollerblading! Make it a day and follow the boardwalk all the way to our neighboring city of Hoboken.
6. Rooftop & Courtyards
Many of our buildings have rooftops & courtyards so you can get time outside without having to go far from home. While many of these areas are available year-round, they're great for summer hangs and parties and are the perfect place to watch the fireworks on the Fourth of July.
