Beautifully large park with barbecue area, picnic tables, play area, walking, running, and biking trails, with a magnificent NYC view. Plenty of free parking on the southern tip of the park. The park is open from sun up to sundown. Plenty of park security around, especially during holiday weekends. I was locked out of my car, and was easily able to get support from the park security that was driving around. The main riverside walkways are well lit at night compared to the grassy trails which get very dark. If you found this review helpful or you enjoy clicking on things.. I’d be delighted if you gave it a 👍🏼 like. Cheers 🍻.
“huge park- ferry for a statue of liberty-attend fairs-wedding/reception and lots of activity. I have come here to catch a ferry for the statue of liberty couple of times and attend 3-4 fairs... recently been there to see 4th July 2016 fireworks. it offers you a splendid view of New York skyline. So, I guess it was the best place to see fireworks. I have seen a wedding happening there... as there are a couple of resorts. U can take a boat to go exchange place from the park. Light rail station is within walking distance. lavish yachts are also parked here. but this is the best place for Sunday picnic with family/friends. the bike trail is also there. and you can encounter N number of runner along the path.
Great place to go if you don't want to deal with the heavy traffic of the city, easy to get to and plenty to do when you get there. When you first arrive there is a beautiful view of Manhattan. You feel like you are right there. (without the crazy hustle and bustle of the city)The park itself is very well taken care of. Lots of great views of the city. We decided to take the ferry ride to Ellis Island and Statue of Liberty. We took our 11 month baby and there was plenty of space for the stroller on the ferries. They give you the option to get off at Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. We chose to stay on the ferry and not get off at the stops due to the time we had. Would recommend for all ages.
A "hidden gem" on the "other side" of the Hudson. Great close up views of the Statue of Liberty. Easy access in and out. Lots of amenities including a boardwalk walking/running path, playgrounds, barbecue pits, boat launching berths. A place to be active or hangout. And the rarest of commodity in an urban setting: free parking.
Liberty state park is like a central park in New Jersey. It's got vast amount of land. I just there are more to do there. Or maybe more trees like the Central Park. More places for families??? So much of space and too much of grass land. But at least Jersey City has that.
