The Newark Reservoir is located just north of downtown Newark, Delaware. Completed in 2006 the newly constructed Newark Reservoir has a 1.8-mile (2.9 km) paved walking trail. (1.1 miles of the trail is the perimeter.) The site is connected to William M. Redd, Jr. Park to the north and has a wonderful view of the City and surrounding areas.
The 318-million gallon reservoir off Paper Mill Road is the first major water facility constructed in Delaware in 74 years. The system pumps water from the White Clay Creek into a basin that encompasses 40 acres (160,000 m2). The last reservoir to be constructed in the state previous to the Newark Reservoir was the Hoopes Reservoir in Wilmington.(Wikipedia)
