Nice park. Many families picknicking, etc. Awesome views of Manhattan skyline and rear view of Statue of Liberty. Got some nice photos - if you care to see what you can get you can check my page - http://www.doziergraphic.com/urban-cityscapes/manhattan-new-york/ Now the negatives -- The cobblestone street to reach the Liberty Park point/departure area for the cruises is a terrible, rough,...

The park felt dirty and hard to get to. Loved the view of lady liberty from here. It looked like they were trying to update it. The toll was $1 each way.

As you drive up to this park, you can't help to notice lady liberty. Took my brother and his family here last visit for a day trip. What a good time. It was hot...bring water. A wonder stroll along the water front, getting great views of ms liberty and ellis island. Next time would bring our bikes...would be a great... More

Very nice family park with a long walking path along the Hudson. Great views of the Statue of Liberty and the NYC skyline. Lots of park benches along the path to sit and enjoy the view. However, not a single vendor along the 3 mile path was seen. With so many people joggiing, walking and riding bike, it would have... More

The easiest way to reach here is hudson burgen light rail which will take you close to this park or just get off here after your visit to statue of... More

We took a nice walk along the Hudson, it was very quiet and extremely peaceful. I would like to come back another day and spend more time here with my family...

Great view of NYC and Statue of Liberty, BUT it all was closed up. Freezing cold meant we only stayed for a matter of minutes, the wind blasting in off the water and no shelter sure it's better in summer but could get very busy I guess. Ample parking but a bit of a drive to get to off the... More

Nice place to view the NY skyline and walkway on the water. We were there on the 4th so was PACKED. But very scenic and set up nicely with water staions and high security.

Great for bike riding. Beautiful views of the NYC skyline and the statute of liberty. I was in awe bike riding along the large walkway next to the water looking at NYC. The park is very well maintained with a large playground for the kids.
