It's outside of New York city just by about 20 minutes. It has several walking trails and a nice well lit trail on the water with a great view of lower Manhattan, the Brooklyn Bridge and Ellis Island. The only downside if there is one is that you are looking at the back of Lady liberty. In which you would them take the Ferry to go to the island and see the front side. This is a great way to spend a nice relaxing hour or two seeing the sites.
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!
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.
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.
I loved my visit. I love the people of New York and New Jersey. They have a beautiful city. Thank you for the memories...
