I never knew this place existed. When I finally went there I enjoyed our walk and also great for photos. Went on a chilly evening, but still had fun. Kids were snowboarding, met a guy skiing. It was just a perfect evening. Enjoy your walk/run or just enjoying the view. You can see lower Manhattan while here and 911 memorial.... More

We went for the ferry to the statue. The park was very confusing. Needs more signs with directions,etc. Spell it out for tourists, where to park, where to buy tickets restrooms, etc.

Excellent park for runners and bikers. It's huge and you can easily get at least 8 miles without having to leave the park. Bathrooms can be found in the center of the park near the playground and the southern most end of the park. Both spots usually have ample parking. It has spectacular views of NYC. BBQ grills, and picnic... More

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
