Liberty State Park, Jersey City, New Jersey, USA
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.
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, Interpretive Center and the CRRNJ Terminal while presenting visitors with a sweeping view of the Hudson River. An 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.
Liberty State Park also is the only location in New Jersey with Ferry service to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty.
