The park can be used for so many different moods. There are city views, there is a brick building that used to be a train station for a more urban feel, there are many different areas with grass and trees for photos that look like you are deep in nature. There are also hills and reed areas. The best part is that many of these areas are in very close proximity of each other. So no matter what kind of feel you want for your family photos, liberty state park has so much to offer that you can find the right kind of backdrop for your family memories here.


Liberty State park is huge. So even though it can get crowded with people when the weather is nice, you can always find quiet spots as well. And since the park stretched along the waterfront you can get NYC views from almost anywhere. Which means that you can maintain the versatility of the park even while escaping the crowds. Because when you have your family photos taken you might want to have a little family time and not feel like you are on display for everyone to watch. Due to the large size of the park you can find a nice quiet corner even on crowded days making it a great location for family photos.


Liberty state park has many different parking lots. Making it easy to navigate to the area that you want to get to. You can also walk there from Jersey City.

Overall Liberty State park has so much to offer that to me it is just the best location for family photos in Jersey City. You can see plenty of examples on my Instagram.
