Newark is a city in Alameda County, California and was incorporated in 1955.  Located 35 miles south of San Francisco and next to many high tech hubs, including easy access to highways 880, 580, 680, and the Dumbarton Cooridor places Newark in an ideal location.

Newark has really evolved throughout the years from its days enriched in agriculture, manufacturing, and railroad to  today's expansion of high-tech, bio-tech, and the health sciences.

Although Newark has grown significantly, it still manages to keep that small, hometown charm of the community and that's what citizens say they love about Newark..  

Newark is currently in the midst of some very exciting projects right now including new housing developments and many retail and commercial businesses.   The City of Newark has many programs and services to meet the community's needs.
