Riverside Park is the venue for a wide range of events, from music concerts to food fairs, funfairs to duck races and also contains a number of pieces of public art including a gnomon sundial.
Every Wednesday an auction market is held on the Riverside Park arena.
The park is just a short walk from Newark Castle, Newark market place, the civil war trail and the town's main shopping area.
Riverside Park is managed by Newark Town Council.
