Visiting & Tourism
Newark's setting along the historic Erie Canal reminds us of the early beginnings of commerce and growth in Western New York. Today, Newark offers a combination of a proud heritage, a quiet small town, and a wonderful place to live or visit.
The NYS Erie Canal passes through the Village of Newark allowing boaters to travel through a scenic water route that runs from Albany to Buffalo. Boaters have the opportunity to dock at the T. Spencer Knight Park (between East Avenue and North Main Street Bridges) while enjoying such amenities as electric hookups, showers, laundry facilities, and WiFi. Newark further incorporates a portion of the Canal Way Trail System that gives ample recreation for hikers, bikers, or individuals that just wish to enjoy wildlife and quiet trails.
Attractions such as restaurants, stores, movie theater, bowling alley, golf, etc. keep residents and visitors alike entertained and active. Our public library and museum offer further prospects for lifelong learning while the parks and community center give a place for activities and relaxation. Every year Village residents and visitors can also enjoy the Annual Rose Parade and Newarkfest which features music, crafts, food booths, family events, and much more.
Rural charm and city convenience merge in our municipality, which we feel offers a wide range of activities and attractions to satisfy the diverse needs of our residents and visitors.
