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.

Nice bike ride. Came about 6:15am on a Saturday which made it even nicer. Great views of the city and the Statue. Got there before the parking attendant came on duty, so free parking!

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.

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.
