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.

I like to go to Oakledge with a friend to practice yoga in the morning during the summer months. Such a quiet, peaceful start to any day.

This is a nice beach area for the kids to wade in Lake Champlain. The water here was fairly calm, with little to no waves. The water was clear and warm. It also remained fairly shallow (maybe 2 feet deep) for at least 25-50 feet from the shore.

Its nice for BBQ's and there is plenty of shade if you dont like the sun. It doesn't have any sand and the beach is very rocky but the water is crystal clear. It also doesn't have a concession stand.

Of all the parks within a 50 mile radius of B town , this is our favorite. Not too crowded, tennis, horseshoe, pavilions, beach front, plenty of grass to play frisbee, etc. we go here on July 3 for the fireworks. Beat the crowds and noise in downtown.

I have been to Oakledge park on multiple occasions. It is a wonderful place during the fair weather seasons. There are many paths to hike and run. Many of the paths lead to private swimming holes, or wonderful views of Lake Champlain. You can get some of the best views of the lake from this park. There are tennis courts,... More
