About Us

Located in the Cathedral Heights neighborhood, the Newark Street Community Garden (NSCG), an organic community garden, shares space with three tennis courts, a dog park, a children’s playground, and a picnic area.  NSCG was established as a community garden in 1974 by local resident Anne Chase as part of National Food Day.  Gardener Peggie Lewis compiled a history of the garden in April 2017.

The land is owned by the city and under the control of the Department of Parks and Recreation.  Carol Wolfe produced a short video about the garden in May 2013.
