Visit the best parks in New Jersey

New Jersey’s amazing parks

New Jersey isn’t called “The Garden State” for nothing! We have some amazing parks, with outdoor recreation possibilities to suit any interest or ability level. Here are our top three picks for the best parks in New Jersey.

Liberty State Park

Located on the Hudson River, this park features walking paths, picnic areas, wildlife spotting in the nearby estuary, and a ferry ride to the Statue of Liberty.

Allaire State Park

With miles of trails for walking, hiking, mountain biking, and equestrian use, this peaceful wooded park is a truly peaceful treasure.

Island Beach State Park

The Jersey Shore may have a bad reputation because of YOU KNOW WHAT, but don’t let that put you off. Our beaches are amazing, none better than Island Beach State Park. This 10 mile stretch of undeveloped barrier island land is a unique ecosystem, and a wonderful place to spend the day.
