Liberty State Park Reviews & Ratings
Loved this place!! The sidewalk actually gets you pretty close to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. It's very wide so there is plenty of room for walking, jogging, sitting, and taking pictures. We spent a couple hours here because we walked all the way to the end of the sidewalk and sauntered back and stopped frequently to take pictures.
One of the best places to view the NY skyline. Amazing views. There’s nothing much to do in the Park as such but you can view the old railroad stations before the subways kicked in. Also the Ferry to the Statue of Liberty is less crowded from here than it is from Battery Park, plus they have a 9/11 memorial as well.
Lovely park with great views. Our dog loved running around in snow here when we lived in Jersey City. It has a 9/11 memorial that is worth the visit. If you are a runner this park has some paths to run with great city views. It if you live in jersey city it’s a fun walk/run to the park. If you are visiting the Statue of Liberty you are bound to be in the park to catch the boat. I would spend some time just hanging around and perhaps eat at one the restaurant that will give a one of the best views of status of liberty and downtown Manhattan
Amazing park. Absolutely stunning view of lower Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty/Ellis island. It feels like you are in a 3D postcard. Healthy 3mile walk sipping coffee with our elderly beagle. She loved the high grass and trees next to the walking path. Felt great for her paws to be off the pavement for a while. I highly recommend this for any visitor to the area.
This is 1 of those iconic American tourist attraction places that everybody has to visit. The views of New York City from Liberty State Park NJ are amazing. For parking there are 2 options. 7$ parking if you want to take the Ferry to see the statue up close. Or a 2 hour free parking if you want to just see the 9/11 monument..do a picnic in the park..take in the views and come back. Statue is well hidden that you cannot just see it without taking the Ferry. It is worth it. Ferry tickets to see Ellis island and Lady Liberty is 18$ for an adult. I visited in July 2019. There is a security check before Ferry ride so carry things carefully. Small bags..food etc is allowed. At least 2 restaurant kind of places in the island where liberty is located. You get pizza, fries, burgers etc. Special ticket needed to go on top of that statue. That needs to be done online in advance since it needs reservation 6 months in advance.
