Enjoy outdoor fun in the green expanse of Liberty State Park. From its Upper North Bay location, you can see Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, and the Manhattan skyline as you picnic, fish, or kayak. You can also walk, bike, or skate on the miles of paths. Take the Liberty Walk, which loops around the waterfront to the Statue of Liberty lookout point. Pay your respects at the Holocaust and 9/11 memorials. Don't miss the Liberty Science Center's interactive exhibits and the nation's largest IMAX dome theatre.

  • Liberty state park was pretty nice especially in warmer weather since its near the Hudson river. The views of Jersey City, the local marina, the Statue of Liberty, and New York City are also very scenic and nice for any photography enthusiast. Take your kids or significant other for a tour around the liberty science center or walk along the old rail road lines and into the station to see a slice of history. Every time I go its always peaceful
  • Beautiful, huge and underutilized state park. Hiking, biking, jogging, fishing, picnics and more. Boat rides to Statue of liberty and/or Ellis Island depart from the north end. Memorial to 9/11 at the north end. Comfort and food facilities (weather permitting ). Charge for parking lot over 2 hours is $7. Free 2 hour lot is small but fills up quickly, especially summer weekend's. Liberty Science Center with new planetarium just a half mile away. Ferry to NYC Wall Street and World Trade Center departs here as well. The ferry is a great, but short, ride and an easy way to visit NYC without the hassle and expense of driving in. This park is one of NJ great secrets. Don't miss it. (Please forgive photos. Taken on a gray yukky day.)
  • Amazing view of the beautiful downtown Manhattan. Excellent place for walking and running around. There are multiple places to dine here but they are pricey. The only downside is that the parking is not free. However it does worth it to go and check it out especially during dusk and evening time. Besides you can enjoy spectacular view of the Statue of Liberty.
  • Went there with my grandson. As a Birthday gift. So many things you can do, not only for the children but adults as well. Go as early as possible. You can catch a show in the planetarium. Experiment go through the touching the starfish. Great place to pass the day.
  • Makes me proud of our country. Being reminded how the USA was a beacon of hope for millions of Europeans is poignant. The Statue of Liberty was also just an amazing gift from France. So fun to show the kids history in real life. If going, it’s way less crowded from the NJ side vs the Battery Park side.
