Newport water park now open

Fun summer option for Hoboken parents near Newport

Hoboken411 reader Sean sent in this photo from the new water park / playground for kids over in Jersey City (near Newport). It’s either a very short drive – or you can even take the connecting walkway at the back of Lackawanna Plaza.

Good to know there are other fun options for families very close to Hoboken.

Does anyone know where exactly this is?

It is essentially across the street from the JC Target parking lot. Driving and parking in this Newport area is not recommended. You have to choose between garages and some street metered parking. But since this area is all privately developed, I believe that the developer controls the parking meters. It is 25 cents per 10 minutes. Crazy. There is no where elsein all of JC where meter parking is more than 25 cents for 20 minutes.
As 411 says, walk through the Lackawanna terminal onto the Hudson walkway, head south for about 100 yards, and you are there.

Awesome! Thanks for sharing. It’s going to be quite warm and muggy this weekend, and will definitely bring the kids over to try it out!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
