Historic Gateway to America Liberty State Park is a green oasis in the middle of Metropolitan northern New Jersey. With the Manhattan skyline, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island as a spectacular backdrop, Liberty State Park is one of the state's most dramatic parks.

Highly recommended to keep going past the flag plaza (south end) and pick up the trail along the golf course. October-March there is a bird sanctuary that is open to the public. It includes a secluded natural beach, the only one remaining in NY harbor, with some great views.

Able to ride a pretty nice loop

Nice easy ride. The breeze keeps you cool along the river.

Spectacular views - great park.

Beautiful views. Go early in the morning before it becomes crowded.

Great place to visit!

been going here for years. nice views very peaceful in the morning

Liberty State Park is nice, right along the Hudson, with great views of the city and the backside of the Statue of Liberty. Also the science building is located there. On the way home from Maine, we visit NYC and leave through the Holland Tunnel over to the NJTP, and at exit one, make a quick detour to Liberty Park. We've visited here three times, once in 1999, with the WTC looming across the river, the second time, in 2002, with Lady Liberty facing out to sea, and the holes in the city where the twin towers once stood. The park was full of picnickers, kite flyers, a wedding party, and people strolling along the Hudson River. Finally, we visiting again in 2014, and visited the Empty Sky Memorial at night, remembering those that were lost. Beautiful open views, lots of places to walk, definitely worth a visit.

Easy walk with spectacular views of the city skyline! I highly recommend going there early in the morning for a sunrise and less people. The only downside to this location is the amount of traffic you can sit in depending on the time and day.
