  • A beautiful park to go for all your activities with a view of the NYC skyline. The view here is hard to beat along with the size of the park. Summer picnics are definitely a plus here. You can see the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and the new Freedom Tower all in one location.
  • Great park to go to, huge playground for the kids and plenty of wheelchair/stroller accessible paths. You won't find rocky trails or any difficult trail there, but the scenery is breathtaking, with astonishing views of downtown Manhattan, Lady Liberty and Ellis Island. Liberty State Park is also the most convenient ferry to Liberty Island.
  • I love this park. Great walk along and over the river. Great NY Sky Line. Very close clear view of the Statue Of Liberty and Ellis Island. Great for families. Great Ferry rides
  • Loved this place! The 9-11 tribute is wonderfully done & humbling. The military statue in the center of the yard and the flags are an awesome tribute to Americans & especially our military. The view of the Statue of Liberty, bridges & NY is beautiful & great picture points from here. They have bike rentals & a nice paved place to ride around the park or jog. A very nice park!
  • Beautiful park with amazing views of Manhattan, the Statue of liberty (Which is actually located in New Jersey), Ellis Island (Which is connected to the park by a bridge), the main transportation area where the new immigrants would leave to head out into their new country, USA. There is the Empty Sky 9/11 Memorial, and the Liberty House Restaurant that has awesome foods and views, and great drinks.
