It was a very cloudy day, and a bit wet since we had rain just before.

Busy huge park, with lots of playground set apart from the Hudson River Walkway. There is a path that connects them though, but it is offset aways.

There are also plenty of picnic tables, a view of the Statue of Liberty and grills available.

Here are some pictures, we also went to Liberty Science Center, where the kids had tons of fun especially with the ball “mousetrap” machine. There is so much to do, it’s hard to begin to say what we liked best.

Update! Check out our review of Liberty Science Center for pre-schoolers here!

Definitely see the IMAX movie, it is really cool to see anything in that theater!
