We were arrived at location to take the Statute Cruise to Ellis Island and Statute of Liberty and the views are amazing you can see across the river to Manhattan, including 1 World Trade Center and Empire State Building and everything in between. I liked that there was TSA like screening prior to boarding. Parking is plentiful and convenient

I love seeing this place standing where millions of people have came through in history. I love to go walk around every time I'm in New Jersey. Today we even seen the military land a helicopter in the middle of the field! It was so beautiful to see against the New York City sky line.

This is a ver nice relaxing place just to walk by yourself or with your loved one or a friend. The breeze from the river is very calm and relaxing just to hear the sound of the water hitting against the rocks along the shore. Also seeing all type of people walking about or laying out on the grass.

The park is expansive, plenty of space for biking, walking, hiking and strolling along the river. Gorgeous view of Manhattan, Statue of Liberty and Verrazano Bridge.

The purpose of our trip to Liberty State Park was to attend an alumni event for donors from the Tri-State area. The event room was big enough to allow tables for eating and a bar set up, but also for chatting (wandering around) with all the attendees. There also was a section for chairs and equipment for the presentation. If... More

If you want to go to the Statue of Liberty - - catch the ferry from here. It is much easier than driving to Battery Park. Parking here is plentiful and pretty close to the ferry - - although it is about a half mile away. Parking near the ferry is not free about $7.00 and the ferry/Statue of Liberty... More

Nice park with a fabulous view of the New York skyline, Ellis Island, and Statue of Liberty from the New Jersey side. Leading up to the park is a little dumpy, but parking is convenient and nice bike/walking trail. Great ferry service to Ellis Island, etc.

We live near Liberty State Park in Jersey City and visit it frequently. It appears to have been designed with runners and walkers in mind and is excellent for both. The views of the Manhattan skyline are beautiful, and the park itself is huge so it never feels crowded. It has some nice fishing spots as well, although my husband... More

Thoroughly enjoyed Liberty state park. Very easy to get to. Parking was easy and tickets to Statue of Liberty were simple to get. Only wished they had more shaded areas with benches. The Empty Sky Memorial is a beautiful tribute to those NJ residents that lost their lives on 9/11. Liberty State Park is a must see.

Beautiful views of the statue of liberty and NYC. We took the ferry to the statue of liberty and ellis island. The kids loved the ride over and couldn't believe how big the statue really is.
