After all the years of visiting New York City, we’ve never been to Liberty State Park. Until this holiday in May; we decided to do something new. For example Liberty State Park. I don’t know why we waited so long to visit Liberty Park. Wow,...More

It's a beautiful park to hike, take a stroll, or have a picnic. The views to New York City are fantastic and you get to see the backside of the Statue of Liberty.

I went here with my 2 kids (2yo, 4mo old). Parking is free, near the playground, which is massive. The walkways are great for strollers, and the views can't be beat.

Its good to buy online. There is a possibility you will get better price quote online versus what is sold at ticket counter. I guess its $18.50/ticket.
