Reviewed 30 April 2008

It's a very spacious park with a lovely view of the statue and the Manhattan skyline.

“Liberty State Park; Not to be missed!”
Reviewed 23 October 2006

After all the years of visiting New York City, we’ve never been to Liberty State Park. Until this holiday in May; we decided to do something new. For example Liberty State Park. I don’t know why we waited so long to visit Liberty Park. Wow, what a view! From here you can see the skyline of Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty, and Ellis Island.

The park has picnic tables (with magnificent views), pool, a public boat launch, playgrounds, fishing spots, several monuments (for example ‘Liberation Monument’), Liberty Walk promenade, tennis courts, Millennium Park, and much more. The Liberty Walk promenade is 1.3 mile long. We walked over the promenade along the Hudson River, with the amazing skyline at the background.

Liberty State Park is also the only location in New Jersey with a Ferry service to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. Instead of going to Battery Park and taking the ferry there, you can also take the ferry from Liberty State Park. So you can enjoy it all; Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and Liberty State Park.

We did take the subway to Penn Station, from there you can take PATH subway to either Pavonia/Newport or Hoboken. A shuttle will bring you to the park. From there, take the Light Rail to Liberty State Park.

We spent some time here. My eyes didn't get enough of the view of the skyline. You just have to look every minute. It's worth a visit!

“The best view of NYC is from Jersey City”
Reviewed 21 June 2005

How can one forget Jersey City's most exciting attraction - Liberty State Park? Formerly abandoned railroad land, this incredible piece of metropolitan area real estate has been transformed into a park like no other. With sweeping views of lower Manhattan, Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty, along with ferries to all of the above, playgrounds, picnic areas, bike paths, estuary, gardens, marina and a fine restaurant with unparalled view. The restored railway station often houses festivals, concerts and other cultural happenings. Easy to access via car, bus or light rail.
