What a beautiful park in Jersey City. Plenty of free parking, and a nice place for a walk with an amazing view. I hope that there are plans to renovate the rail yards here in the future as they tell an amazing story in line with the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.

The views of the skyline and the statue are amazing. We parked at the playground which was free and walked around, did not take the ferry. The park was virtually empty on a Tuesday. As a park there is very little shade and it is a bit run down.

This park is definitely THE place for boarding your Liberty Ferry if you're staying in Jersey City. Get some amazing views of Manhattan skyline, do picnic/BBQ inside the park if you want any sort of that stuff. The best part is you'll board the ferry and go to Liberty Island without the big standing hour long queues of Battery Park.And... More

Well worth the ticket price. You can ride the ferries all day as long as you don't get off at either the Liberty Park in NJ or Battery Park in NYC. We started off in NJ's Liberty Park and, after we saw Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty, we got off in Battery Park. After seeing a bit of... More

This is one of the most amazing park in New Jersey with a spectacular backdrop of Manhattan skylines and liberty statue (depending on your location, you can see the left side and the full back of the statue). Visit the park website for all the activities you can do in this park. Just note that there is no food vendors... More

great view of the NYC skyline - the 9/11 memorial took my breath away. Long lineup of the ferry so we didn't do that but it would've been a nice trip.

Saturday was a little busy at Liberty State Park. We took the ferry to the Statue of Liberty on Sunday. It's easy to find the dock and parking area. Go early, beat the crowd. Go see the lady first before it gets too hot. Visit Ellis Island second as the building is very cool. Plus the family research area doesn't... More

there are not as many people going to the Statue of Liberty from the NJ side. So it was faster to get on and off the boat compared to coming in from NYC. Particularly when trying to leave.
