The kids will learn a lot about history and things going on today. My grand daughter learned about how germs are created in the kitchen and how to avoid them. They dress you up in protective clothing while you learn.

I have lived in NJ for 20+ years and made my first visit to Liberty State Park today. Had a thoroughly satisfying walk with spectacular views of lower Manhattan as well as the Statue of Liberty and the Verrazano bridge. This is a very peaceful park with interesting walkways through natural marshlands and lots of open fields.

This is my favorite all around park. The park itself is beautiful and inviting. My young children bike along as I run a few miles; we are treated to amazing views of lady liberty, manhattan, and Ellis island. Great kids' playground with surprisingly clean bathrooms. We go as often as we can find the time.

Liberty State Park is a godsend to the people living nearby in downtown Jersey City. There are a number of very nice small neighborhood parks but nothing suitable for biking or long distance running, like LSP is. The park has seen many improvements in the past 15 years and continues to get better with additional walking paths and new areas opened to the public. If you make it to the far south end, near the golf course, you can see a variety of herons and egrets feeding there at low tide, in the spring through fall seasons, note that the area is a protected sanctuary for Migratory Birds.

The view of lower Manhattan is incredible, of course. There are two decent restaurants on the Marina, both with bars. I haven't been in some months but my preference was Maritime Parc, which is more high-end but not particularly more expensive than the other one, Liberty House. The view from Liberty House cannot be beat, however. They have a large outdoor patio with couches, tables, a bar, all facing Manhattan. Fabulous on a nice day. Maritime Parc has better food though. How about drinks at Liberty House, then dinner at the Parc?
