I have lived in Newark for about 11 years now. From what I have experienced, Newark is what you make of it. Like any other town, Newark has its not so nice areas. Some people choose to describe Newark based on theses negative traits. However, Newark is has a communities full of wonderful people. As a student of Newark High School I am really involved. I am in the student council, honor society, and I am also on the baseball team. No matter what group I am with the people of the town are always involved. Whether it is a fundraiser, a game, or a food drive, people always want to get involved and help. It is for reasons like this why I have wonderful experiences with Newark.

Newark is a small but bustling town in Ohio. It contains lots of stores, restaurants and activities that are great for all ages. There are 3 schools in Newark and sports can be found at the high school. Many of the restaurants support surrounding schools. The roads are taken care of very well, and the cities safety standards are up to date. A skate park was recently built in the downtown area of Newark and it is a popular hub for all ages.
Newark is a small, little town outside of the Ohio State capital in Columbus. I specifically live in Hanover, Ohio, which is an even smaller town inside of Newark. If you like everybody knows everybody kind of town, then this is the perfect town for you, because you can't go anywhere without people saying hi, and making a conversation with you like you are a part of each other's family.
