Ridgewood Park Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

Date: July 14, 2022


Congratulations to the City of Newark on the re-opening of Ridgewood Park! Mayor Ras Baraka was joined by City officials and community members to proudly cut the ribbon to open this newly renovated park in the City’s South Ward. SCE is proud to have provided design services which include NEW amenities that have a special focus on sensory play equipment for children with autism and special needs.

The park started as a playground with overgrown vegetation and has been transformed into a safe and engaging facility for kids of all ages. A success story for local community engagement, the improvements include play structures for children ages 2–5 and 5-12, outdoor musical instruments, a stage, sensory panels, a rubber safety surface, colored concrete sidewalk within the park, backless and circular benches, and planted shade trees and ornamental trees. Congratulations to all who were involved in brining this inclusive outdoor environment to life – a great addition to the City of Newark!
