• Overview

    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.

    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.

    Facilities and activities include visitors center, interpretive center, boating / canoeing on the Hudson River and New York Bay, trailer launch, picnic area, playground, food concession, fishing and crabbing, marina and trails for hiking, biking, nature and fitness trails.

    The park also features the historic Central Railroad of New Jersey Terminal (CRRNJ), a grand setting for much of New Jersey's transportation history in the northeast, sits prominently at the north end of the park. A two-mile promenade, Liberty Walk links the picnic area, while presenting visitors with a sweeping view of the Hudson River.

    The CRRNJ Terminal and Interpretive Center are currely closed due to Sandy Storm related damage.
