We made a brief stop at this park so the kids could get a better look at NYC, Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. During our short visit we saw a playground and a lovely boardwalk to walk along with plenty of benches to sit and enjoy the view. We did not see any permanent bathroom facilities, only porta...

Liberty state park is a huge place with ample parking space ! I usually go biking here from my home which is around 3-4 miles . It gives mesmerising views of downtown NY city . Also there is a 9/11 memorial which is recently built 3 years ago . Statue of Liberty cruises leave from here also .

There's a lot of open space where you can enjoy a family outing . Watch boats, people water skiing or simply flying kites. You can view the open sky during the day or night watch the sun set or long walk. Great for people of all ages playgrounds for children, educational aspects and historical sites as well.

The park was pretty nice. Looked like they hadn't mowed in a month though. There was nothing really to look at just a big park with some paths that wasn't too exciting. Could use some bathrooms randomly. All in all nice place.

Got to see the 911 memorial as well as the old terminal that use to send out the new immigrants to North America. Beautiful views of New York City. Only 7.00 for parking for the ferry. Cheapest we seen all trip. Have to pay a toll to get into the park. Being from Canada we do not have many tolls... More

This is one of my favorite location to show first time visitors. The higlight is the 9/11 memorial specialty at night when you look at it you feel like you are in a time tunnel..

Today my girlfriend and I took a walk along the waterfront at Liberty State Park. It was a rather warm day but the breeze off of the Hudson made it quite bearable. There is a bulletin board at the entrance that states what events are going on during the day, and the times that they start. Some of the events... More

Once we enter the State park the walk to the Ferry ride is a good one. The old Jetty which was used and the now not functional heritage buildings that are there. The skyline view that appears from the walk in the path next to the water front is worth a watch.

You can get tickets to see the Statue of Liberty, which you should obviously. There is a beautiful 9/11 memorial there that you should take the time to see as well. There is a nice walkway along the waterfront and plenty of grass for....doing park stuff? There's also a pretty decent restaurant on the harbor side.
