From Liberty State Park, to Hamilton and Newport Green Park, the options are endless. To help get you started, here are a few of our favorite places to picnic in Jersey City.
Newport Green Park
While Liberty State Park may be the most popular park in Jersey City, there’s no doubt that for kids, Newport Green Park is absolutely the coolest.

It’s an experience all on its own. Learn more about Newport Green Park.
Liberty State Park
Host to some of the largest gatherings in the state, Liberty State Park is also one of the most popular parks in Jersey City.
