    First time
    LOVED IT!! What a great way to get outside, walk and see some monuments. I spent a good part of my day here. It was just a beautiful day to stroll...a great breeze off the water side and then I found some exercise stations on the road side. Parking was free!!

    Great view of Statue of Liberty from the New Jersey side of things.
    Great place to see the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. For some reason, I didn't realize the Statue of Liberty was in between New York city and New Jersey. We were planning on being in the area for another event and looking what we could do in our free time. We discovered the Statue of Liberty was in viewing distance of the New Jersey shore, in fact very close. I expected a sort of roadside type of park and an area with a view of the Statue of Liberty. Was I surprised! New Jersey has a very spacious state park just behind the statue. The park was not just a viewing area. It had a nice visitor center (with restrooms), a picnic/family friendly area complete with grills, and very spacious grounds that included a nice WWII memorial. We did not make it, but there is a walkway to a science center and ferries that run to both Liberty Island and Ellis Island. We did make it to the nature center just down the road from the viewing area. It was also very nice, with both outdoor and indoor displays of the natural side of things related to the area. Kudos to the New Jersey State Park Service for such a nice facility.

    Amazing and special views of the Manhattan Skyline
    Liberty State Park is located on the shores of the Hudson River allowing for amazing views of the Manhattan skyline. My mother and I needed a break from our road trip and we were pleasantly surprised with the special views of One World Trade Center and the Statue of Liberty. Although we were seeing Lady Liberty’s backside it was still an amazing view. Free parking and clean bathrooms are available next to Flag Plaza near the south end of the park. There we found a shaded picnic area with access to Liberty Walk Promenade. The promenade stretches the entire length of the park running along the river’s edge. The gps I used for this area was 200 Morris Pesin Dr Jersey City. You can also take Freedom Way Dr to the north side of the park to access the Empty Sky 9/11 Memorial and Ferry services. Paid and limited free parking available. My only con is that handicap parking should be closer or allow a drop-off area for the physically challenged. It is a great distance to reach the promenade from the parking areas.

    Chill Day Out: Liberty State Park
    Liberty State Park is a laid-back oasis in Jersey City, offering green spaces, waterfront views, and a chill vibe. Perfect for picnics, casual walks, and family fun at the Liberty Science Center. It's a go-to spot for a relaxed day out with a great view of the Statue of Liberty – nature, history, and good times in one place.

Beautiful views from the waterfront in Jersey City and along Liberty State Park boardwalk. Very walkable and good restaurants

I walked around this park. There was no admission cost. It was a little tough to navigate my drive within this park, but I found free parking for two (2) hours. In my belief, this park was safe, but I thought that the adjacent areas were more suspect. There were police officers patrolling this park. I liked the views of Jersey City, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Ellis Island, Liberty Island, and the Verrazzano Bridge. There were ferries available which took people to various attractions. This park had many grasslands for people to host events. There was also a 9/11 memorial.

The views and sights you can take in at this park are surreal. Lower Manhattan, Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Empty Sky Memorial…so glad we went.

Parked here on the way to taking the ferry for Statue of Liberty. Certain parts were well maintained but other parts looked run down, much like most of Jersey City, IMO. The landscaping could use work but there was plenty of parking and as you get closer to the water, it gets cleaner by the waterfront.

This New Jersey park has a good view of the Statue of Liberty and New York's Manhattan and the Ellis Island museum buildings. The parking lots are free and at least in November there was plenty of space. There is also a Liberation Monument in the park.

A beautiful prelude to something so significant to our cherished country AMERICA. The Empty Sky Memorial was a surprise, so beautiful. I loved the history of the train station.
