Harborview Park in Bayonne

Harborview Park, located in Bayonne, New Jersey, is open to visitors from dawn to dusk. Out here, it feels like you can leap across to lower Manhattan or reach out and touch the Statue of Liberty. That’s how this two-acre park at The Peninsula at Bayonne Harbor has been described.

“The views are simply breathtaking,” remarked one park visitor. “It’s a great place to come and take a break from everything.”

In 2006, Harbor View Park was built by the Bayonne Local Redevelopment Authority (BLRA) and funded in part by the Hudson County Open Space Trust Fund and a contribution from Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines. Its centerpiece is the recently dedicated memorial “To the Struggle Against World Terrorism” a gift from Russian sculptor Zurab Tsereteli. The “September 11… Bayonne Remembers” committee also oversees a paver stone program of engraved pavers within the pathways at the Park.
