With a spectacular backdrop of the harbor, Liberty State Park offers visitors plenty to explore and learn as well as providing them with that postcard photo opportunity. Given to the nation by New Jersey in honor of the bicentennial in 1976, the park is just a quick trip across the harbor and is home to natural areas, local history, and educational programs for the whole family. Located in the most densely populated state in the nation, Liberty State Park is a precious 1,112 acres of open space. Less then 2,000 feet from the Statue of Liberty, the park offers up-close views from a two-mile-long waterfront promenade. Visitors can even hop on a ferry to visit the Statue and Ellis Island.
