About the George Wilson Center
The George Wilson Center and Park is located at 303 New London Road (across from Clayton Hall). We offer a wide variety of recreational activities for your enjoyment. The park is equipped with a lighted basketball and tennis court, a youth baseball (T-ball) field, swimming pool, small pavilion, playground equipment, picnic tables, horseshoe pit, and lots of shade; great for family or group outings. The center is open seven days each week.

Rental
In addition, the center is available for rental (wedding receptions, graduation parties, meetings, training sessions, etc.). The George Wilson Community Center is Newark’s best-kept secret as a multi-purpose meeting space. The indoor facilities are available to organizations or individuals for rental purposes. The main hall has a seating capacity of 150 people. Each meeting room has a seating capacity of 20 people. If you are planning a birthday party, anniversary, baby shower or would like to hold a civic, business, or other meeting, please give us a call or stop by to speak with our professional staff. In addition to affordable rates, we offer a staff person on site during all rentals, who will provide set up and take down of tables and chairs. We have additional equipment available for your unique needs, such as a big screen TV, DVD player, stage, and podium.

Rentals must be reserved in person, with a permit and deposit required.
