Terrific views over Manhatten, Ellis Island and, of course, Liberty Island. Easy access, free parking and not another soul in sight.....although it was probably the coldest day ever known to man ........

There is no better park than Liberty State Park. It is such a easy relaxing place to be. You can walk, bike ride, dine, cookout, or just lay on the grass and watch the scenic view. You have the Liberty Science Center and can take a boat ride around Manhattan. I personally walk three times a week in the park.... More

A vast open park with a long Boardwalk for biking jogging or just strolling. Lower Manhattan views and the back side of Lady Liberty follow you. Walk or bike past the " secret " bridge that goes to Elis Island. plenty of picnic areas with BBQ pits if that is your thing. Great place to fly a drone. Also within... More

I'll divide this into two parts. Part One. Runner. I live two miles down the street from here, so I can be a bit biased as to it's location, however there is no place out of all the places I've lived that is better for a run. (Los Angeles/Chicago) Along the way you see the same friendly people out for... More

I live in Jersey City and have visited Liberty State Pk for the past 15 years at least once a week. There are great walking paths along the Hudson River with the greatest views of lower Manhattan, Liberty and Ellis Islands. Start at either end of the park and walk to the opposite end which is 1.5 miles each way... More

This is a gorgeous park with magnificent views of New York City and the New York Harbor. It is a great place to walk, run or bike and if you bring a bike the best way to get there is by Ferry which you can catch at the World Financial Center and it will take you right to the Park... More

This park is constantly under attack by commercial interests because they refuse to accept that ordinary people have a right to something great (even spectacular). So they are always snipping away at its free and open situation. where there was a public picnic area there are now expensive restaurants that few loacl residents can afford. Where there was a sunlit... More

This park is awesome to walk around, go for a run. There are many Hudson county races that are done in this part. There is a beautiful boardwalk and a memory wall for 9/11. There are a lot of play areas for children. There is a boat marina and a few restaurants. You can get the ferry into lower Manhattan.... More
