Liberty State Park SAVED from Commercialization Threats!!

May 4th 2018 – Governor Phil Murphy and NJDEP Commissioner McCabe rejected the rigged Liberty National Golf Proposal aimed at usurping the Caven Point Natural Area of LSP! Cheers to the hundreds of people and organizations who urged the protection of our public land!

June 1st 2018 – Governor Murphy and NJDEP Commissioner McCabe rejects a proposed marina on the south end of LSP in favor of public trust and ensured that LSP will be managed for people of all incomes to enjoy.

 We thank Sam Pesin, President of Friends of Liberty State Park, as well as the Murphy administration, for once again rallying the public in defense of this great public open space.

What is Liberty State Park?

For those who don’t know LSP is the priceless, free and green park behind Lady Liberty and Ellis Island. LSP is peaceful, scarce urban open space in one of our nation’s most densely populated regions. It sees millions of visitors each year and is jam-packed on warm weekends year-round.
For forty years, overwhelming public consensus has consistently rejected exactly these kinds of privatization proposals. Thanks to YOU, LSP will remain a People’s Park!
