About Newark

Located just east of the San Francisco Bay in northern California, Newark offers a small town atmosphere on the edge of Silicon Valley. Explore the Silliman Community Activity Center for sports fields, fitness programs, and an aquatic center featuring an indoor pool, water park and spa, or enjoy playgrounds, trails and fishing at one of the city’s 15 community parks and play spaces. Browse the shops at NewPark Mall or the Lido Faire Shopping Center, then pick up some fresh produce at Sprouts Farmers Market. Discover local favorite eateries like Dino’s Grill and Ray’s Crab Shack, or stop by Vinum Wine Bar for some wine and tapas. Newark celebrates its history with the annual Newark Days Festival, and supports the community by hosting weekly farmers markets featuring local goods and entertainment. Sports fans can cheer on the nearby Oakland Athletics, Oakland Raiders, or the Golden State Warriors. Located less than 20 miles north of Newark, the San Jose International Airport offers direct flights to Atlanta, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Phoenix, and more.
