Liberty State Park Updates Lighting on Popular Pathways

Built mostly on landfilled tidal flats where two rail lines once terminated, Liberty State Park in Jersey City, N.J., is a natural mecca surrounded by water on three sides. The park, which opened in 1976, spans 1,212 acres and features ferries to the Statue of Liberty National Monument, Ellis Island and Liberty Island, all of which are nearby. Despite its proximity to these landmarks, Liberty State Park has many attractions of its own, including bike and walking trails, a marina, the Liberty Science Center, and a monument to the Holocaust and memorial to 9/11. Today, the walkways and dock to the Manhattan overlook are lit by LED luminaires thanks to recent site renovations.

Nautical-styled LED luminaires illuminate the walkways and dock to the Manhattan overlook at Liberty State Park.

The new nautical-styled luminaires feature a vertical LED power array that produces even light distribution with minimal glare so visitors can enjoy activities at the park without lighting being an issue. The fixtures, which are offered in two sizes, are available in multiple arm mount configurations, wall mounts or post tops. Lens options include clear or opal smooth acrylic and clear or opal smooth polycarbonate. Textured finishes are available in black, dark bronze, gray, green and white along with custom colors.

More than 20 LED fixtures have been placed with more on the way as improvements continue.
