Newport Green includes features like an elaborate water-park that puts any Hoboken effort to shame, lounging areas, outdoor ping-pong, free WiFi access, and even a fully functioning merry-go-round!

And as you can see from the signage – they are PROUD to boast that it was a private endeavor, and ZERO public funding was used. In other words – the local government kept their sloppy hands out of it. The result is a nice place that isn’t falling apart at the seams due to mismanagement.
