As an employee of the city, I may be a bit one-sided in my review, but I can say that I have taken many many trips to Oakledge park. I have brought groups of children in all seasons and Seniors in fall and spring. There is a swimming beach, stand up paddling (for a fee) in summer, great views, an... More

We stumbled upon this gem when we went to rent SUPs for the day. Inexpensive day parking rate, bocce courts, beach area, plenty of open space for soccer games or family/friends to gather. Lots of people walking or riding their bikes along the paved paths.

Feels a bit more raw than Water Front where you can find locals bath, sunbath, fish, play various field games or just throw a picnic. Great view of the lake. Don't miss the treehouse ;)

Lots of varied activities here. It is the start of the Island Line Trail which was why we were there. Besides the beach, restrooms and grassy areas, they have a bocce ball court. Plenty of parking.

Furthest point from the trail, so great starting point to ride the entire trail. $ 8 parking for the day. Bathrooms, play area, and sand and grass to enjoy the beach. Rental and stand up paddle board lessons available the day we were there. Although we didn't try it, did hear the instructor being very supportive to two young girls... More

As a UVM student, I hardly came down to Oakledge and I really missed out. Glad to have another chance to see it and utilize the great space. It's a 2 minute walk from where we are staying. My toddler loves to play hide and seek by the Earth Clock, slide at the playground, and swim at the beach. It's... More

Wonderful for a picnic, a swim, a stroll, tennis, the lake view, a BBQ, frisbee, volley ball, with a nice playground for the kids, too! It is also the south entrance to the Burlington Waterfront Bikepath, which is a beautiful place for touring Lake Champlain. Love this park. Great spot for watching the sunset (and the 3rd of July fireworks!).

This park is representative of Vermont. Lovely views of Lake Champlain from a rocky shore. Nice pavilions and wide open grassy areas. Great for kids and dogs.

Oakledge is probably the nicest park in Burlington, but what makes it special is the stunning view of the lake and the Adirondacks. Whenever I take friends and family here, they can't believe how beautiful it is. Most reviewers mention it during the summer months, when you can swim, but it's stunningly beautiful in the fall, and in the winter,... More

A great place to hang out in the summer where you can BBQ, swim, hike and best of all, cliff jump. It is just south of Burlington and very easy to get to.
