Liberty State Park
With dramatic views of the Manhattan skyline, Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, Liberty State Park and its amenities draw four million guests a year.
Located within the 1,212-acre park is the historic Central Railroad of New Jersey Terminal, a grand setting for much of New Jersey's transportation history. At its peak, the terminal served 30,000 to 50,000 commuters every day.
A two-mile promenade, Liberty Walk, links the picnic area, interpretive center and terminal while presenting visitors with sweeping views of the Hudson River and Manhattan.
A new outdoor performance area and other improvements mark the northern section of the park, while the western portion is dominated by the state-of-the-art Liberty Science Center, an exciting, interactive science museum.
Ferry service to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island is available at the park. The park features a multitude of activities and its visitors' and interpretive centers provide historical background information.
There is boating and canoeing on the Hudson River and New York Bay, plus picnic areas, a playground, food concessions, areas for fishing and crabbing and a marina.
The park also features trails for hiking, biking, nature walks and fitness and it’s the site of spectacular Fourth of July fireworks.
