This is a nice park with quite a few areas to it. There are sports fields, walking paths, and lots of different things going on. There are free and paid parking lots. Stroll along the water and take in the views. Make sure you stop by the 9/11 Memorial while in the park by the old terminals.

Although much of the boardwalk was damaged from hurricane Sandy, they've fixed much of it. There is a playground with picnic tables and stationary grills. There is also a small bike rental company there as well with paths and trails. The waterfront has and old train station and a 9/11 memorial. Very nice place to visit and ride through.

We live close to LSP, always something going on, festivals, picnics, and the views are the best in NJ....It is always a clean and safe park. Very happy to highly recommend it for relaxing, biking, or even exercising!

I have been enjoying regular visits to Liberty State Park, Jersey City, New Jersey on a regular basis for more than three years. The promenade along the Hudson River provides an excellent opportunity for race-walkers, bikers and joggers to get in some exercise. I especially enjoy riding my bike around the park and the spectacular views of the New York... More

An unexpectedly nice park in Jersey City with panoramic views of NY City skyline. Just across the Hudson and yet you feel you are in Manhattan. Loved walking thru the park and the stroll along the river. A perfect view of Ellis Island and the back side of the Statue of Liberty. So close, it felt like you can reach... More

I was visiting my brother in Secaucus and decided to fit in a trip here. The view of New York and One Trade Center is incredible. The 911 memorial will bring a tear your eye and the structure is mind blowing. There is a piece of the tower in front of the memorial ....well one cannot describe the feeling gazing... More

Underused, great park with magnificent view of the NYC skyline and a ferry to SOL. Nice walking park, easy to get to. Has closed environmental center that was damaged from Sandy and not repaired, what a shame. There are so few facilities and nice parks in this area. Also nice playground.

Boardwak on the Liberty State Park has a very nice view. For those who want to see downtown Manhattan from outside and take a picture, I strongly recommend this spot. This is also a great spot to see a statue of liberty. But beware. She is only showing her back and you can't see her face. This place often get... More

This park has a great view of Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. It is well planned and a good place for family time. You can also take a ferry to the Statue of Liberty from here - much closer than from NYC.

Nice park if you have extra time. We saw this while taking ferry for Statue of Liberty. Nothing exceptional, but well maintained
