We have not yet visited Washington Park, but from what we have heard it is great. Here are some notes from their site:
Shared by Union City and Jersey City, Washington Park has a rich history of providing an ideal location for leisure and recreational enjoyment. Offering open space where these two cities meet, visitors can enjoy the green, passive areas with its shady and winding walkways. For visitors who are looking for some active space, Washington Park is home to facilities for a variety of sports and activities.

Washington Park has its own unique attributes as a Hudson County park. Situated near the 14th street viaduct, Washington Park offers notable views of the New York City skyline. A remarkable stainless steel sculpture stands 14 feet high and 35 feet wide at the entrance on Paterson Plank Road. It was created by accomplished artist and Jersey native Chakaia Booker. The park landscape features a large trellis sculpture, two gazebos, a picnic area, and beautiful ornamental gardens. Canine lovers can bring their pet to get some exercise at the enclosed dog run.

This County Park offers baseball and softball players four fields, which are equipped with lighting for evening play and two of which feature synthetic turf, and a batting cage for Little Leaguers! Visitors can bring their "A" game and play on the other facilities: 10 tennis courts, one full and 3 half basketball courts, and a volleyball court. Children can enjoy outdoor recreation at Washington Park on the playground or cool off at the spray pool in the summertime. Residents throughout the area can exercise with a jog or a bike ride along the 3.8 mile of trails.
