Best Parks Near 90 Columbus

Jersey City is the second biggest city in the state, second only to Newark. This means the city is relatively built up, with plenty of office buildings, municipal infrastructure, and residential buildings, including our luxury Jersey City rentals.

Fortunately, Jersey City is home to many urban parks, each of which offers something different. Take the kids to the playground, have a picnic beneath a leafy oak, or drive to the waterfront at night for a little peace and quiet – and a fantastic view of Manhattan.

We’ve put together a list of our favorite parks near the luxury Jersey City rentals of 90 Columbus – and what we love about each of them.

Liberty State Park

Liberty State Park is the largest – and closest, at just over a mile away – green space near our luxury Jersey City rentals. This park is best known as the gateway to Ellis Island, a former U.S. immigration point, and the Statue of Liberty. But it is also used by locals for barbecues, picnics, recreational sports, and more. The park offers stunning views of the Manhattan skylines and tree-lined walkways – the perfect escape right in the heart of downtown.

Hamilton Park

Hamilton Park is a small green space less than a mile northwest of 90 Columbus. This park has tons of things to keep kids occupied: a fenced-in play area for young children, a splash pad, and basketball nets. It also has a dog run, a sheltered plaza for gathering, and a fountain surrounded by benches, grass, and flowering trees.

Van Vorst Park

Van Vorst Park is neatly tucked between four streets in historic downtown Jersey City, occupying the entire block and located near many luxury Jersey City rentals. This park is an urban hub with a public square, plenty of big trees, a dog run, and even a community garden. The park hosts a regular farmers’ market, as well as other community events, such as knitting in the park.

Morris Canal Park

This park might be small, but it features a picnic-perfect grassy space and incredible views of the Hudson River and New York City on the other side. It is situated at the Morris Canal Basin, directly across the water from Liberty State Park.

J Owen Grundy Park

J Owen Grundy Park is located half a mile east of our luxury Jersey City Rentals right on the Hudson River. This is another great spot to view New York City, day or night.

With plenty of things to do and see in Jersey City, urban green spaces might not be at the top of your list.
