Washington Park Station is served by cars for Penn Station only. The station is located on along the west side of Broad Street, and has a sidewalk platform on the west side of the single track, where the sidewalk simply raises up to the Newark Light Rail Half-High platform height.The platform is directly alongside Washington Park between Lombardy Street (that trains curve onto) and Washington Street that becomes Bridge Street at the intersection. The station has a similar design to it's Broad Street-bound sister station Atlantic Street a block away. Parallelism to the Light Rail platform on the other side of it a low fence separates another bus platform for southbound buses. Blue letters spell out Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising every time we fall. The platform accommodates two bus stops each with a canopy similar to those on the light rail platform.
The platform and edge of the sidewalk has red box with that forms a line of lighting. A Canopy is towards the southern end of the platform (smack in the middle of its block). It is slightly angled and above the light box line. Windscreens on the platform are unique oval shapes, Wind Shields by Willie Cole. The trackbed has the usual jazz notes and the platform edge the lyrics, part of the artwork on Jazz by Athena Tacha. The work engraved in this station is Footprints by Wayne Shorter.
