Description

Jersey City's leading tourist attraction is the gateway to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Liberty State Park is a green oasis, over 1,212 acres in the middle of Jersey City with spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, making it one of the state's most dramatic parks. Ornithology enthusiasts should pack their binoculars as there are numerous species of birds which frequent the park. Liberty State Park is the perfect place for a family and picnic at one of the playgrounds.

There is always a nice breeze for flying a kite, or you may enjoy the waters by fishing or crabbing, boating or kayaking. Hop on a ferry, year round, to visit the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, or stop by and participate in one of the Natural or Historical Interpretive programs at the Interpretive Center designed by famed architect Michael Graves. Explore the historic Central Railroad of New Jersey Terminal Museum, where nearly two-thirds of the twelve million immigrants who entered this country through Ellis Island boarded trains heading to their new homes in America. Explore the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway which runs from Bayonne (South), past Liberty State Park and the Statue of Liberty all the way (North) into Hoboken and is over 18.5 miles long with phenomenal views of NYC. Rent a bicycle to enjoy it all. Make sure to check out the events calendar to see what's happening in Liberty State Park today.
