Stayed at the Conrad with the kids. Its the perfect spot for the kids to get out and play. Huge playground and they have tons of toys they pull out for the day including pool tables and ping pong tables. Perfect for getting jealous and letting your kids play with rich peoples kids. You might even spot some famous people.

The mostly of park area is passing for a modernization. Lots of people working and some isolated areas. Come back in 3 or 4 months. That is the place to get the boat to Liberty Statue and Ellis Islands

This park is great for taking in the view and also for the Tom Otterness sculptures, they're such fun. Plenty of benches to sit and watch the sunset over Jersey City and the Statue of Liberty. Lots of green space too for picnics and games with the family

This is the park along the Hudson almost at the tip of Manhattan. Pretty side streets. Many benches to sit and look across the Hudson at the Jersey coast,The Statue of Liberty, or just the passing boats. Good idea for a warm night.warm night .

A small park by the Hudson River, this place is perfect for a stroll to get away from the bustling downtown. There are grassy lawns to relax in and benches to sit in while admiring the river.

This park is just breath-taking, enough space for walking, running a picnic, or just lounging around and soaking up the sun. Lady Liberty stood in sharp relief in the distance.

It should be more bike friendly. Once you go to spend some time you wish you could enjoy the experience. There were works going on on both sides of the streets.
