A great place for a pit stop as public bathroom facilities are available. The playground is good sized and gave the children plenty of entertainment. After our picnic lunch we walked to the riverfront and enjoyed the world class views, simply stunning.

On foot, by bicycle or by car - it's a great park to hang out. A breath of fresh air and a view of the Statue of Liberty

Liberty State Park has it all! Nature-got it. Paths for walking-got it. Fitness trails-got it. History-got it... National monuments, boating, a view that can't be beat, a restaurant, memorials, playgrounds, Picnic grounds, BBQ grilling, fields, flowers, bike paths, plenty of parking. It goes on and on here. Take a long walk, probably 3 miles from one end to the other... More

The park consists of over 1,000 acres, has a nature preserve, playgrounds, 911 memorial and other monuments, picnic and barbeque areas, a historical train terminal and ferries to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. There are also two restaurants in the park, The Liberty... More

Liberty State Park is perfect for a Sunday afternoon outside the city. My favorite part about the park is the overabundance of park benches which allows weary travelers to sit and soak in the incredible view of Lady Liberty while traversing the walkways. It is a cheap date spot complete with hotdogs and ice-cream. Plenty of parking--which is always a... More

We had to drop my son at the Newark Airport early Sunday morning. I wanted to do something outside so we went to Liberty State Park. We got there early so parking was not an issue. It is lovely there. A big wide walkway along the water facing the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. There is a nice playground... More

Just not much there considering how many other things there are to do nearby. I wouldn't recomment it unless you are looking for a place to picnic and play frisbee. Then again, it was the place where we went to catch the ferry to Ellis Island/Statue of Liberty. For that purpose it was great. Easy access to trains, roads, plenty... More

When we have visitors from out-of-state we bring them here as soon as possible to see the skyline of downtown Manhanttan before we even take them to the city. This way they can get a nice overview of the city. You can see buildings in downtown and even the Empire state building from here. It's also very relaxing to walk... More

Of a lot of side interests. The tower stands tall and the ferries heading in and out was lovely. Being in March, my time outside had to be minimized, but would like to go again when the weather is a bit more inviting. Cheers
