We went there in a rented car. Easy to find, easy parking, incredible area - There were *NO* people there. Amazing view of the NYC skyline, excellent view of the Statue of Liberty. We had a beautiful walk there, first at the start of the park, then we drove to where the park offices were for an even better view... More

Don't go to NYC to see its lower skyline up close. Go to Liberty St Park. It's free, clean, and easy to park. My family had a reunion at the available pavilions there. The pavilions were clean as well as the nearby restrooms. We walked around and only began to see all that is there. Bicycles. Runners. Walkers. An excellent... More

I like the walks and views of Manhattan and the New Jersey riverfront. The park includes the disused Central Railroad of New Jersey which is being rehabilitated post-Hurricane Sandy.

Wow! Liberty Island State Park is very easy to get to and very easy to love. The man staffing the information booth on Sunday, September 21, was so friendly, I really appreciated that! There was no fee to get into the park, but we did have to pay to park at the old train terminal, where we caught the ferry... More

Easy to find. The park is clean and associates helpful. You can catch the ferry or visit the restaurants there and have you ticket validated. It is only $7.

As folk have said great value, but give yourself plenty of time. The trip was marred for me by the "rough attitude" of the security people and one or two of the ferry personell . On our return we ran to get the ferry and the guy literally swung the gate across our path so we couldn't board and then... More

Couldn't find a better place than the wide path along the Hudson River. I took the short ferry across the inlet from Paulus Hook and enjoyed a grey run with views of Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and way up to downtown and midtown Manhattan.

Excellent value for money - $18 for a ticket Liberty and Ellis Islands plus a ticket to the pedestal of Lady Liberty. **Note: for tickets to go up the Statue of Liberty (crown or pedestal) book way in advance. There are a limited amount of tickets for this for safety issues.**
