It is on Upper New York Bay, opposite Liberty Island and Ellis Island. It has wonderful views of Manhattan and the Hudson River. The park covers 1,212 acres, including a 36 acre nature preserve. There are many fields, bike paths and walkways, including Liberty Walkway along the bay/river.
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.
Super views with wonderful open spaces. Great place to exercise, relax or just have fun.
