A great place to spend an afternoon, plenty of green grass to play on or have a picnic. Lots of trees for shade, which is perfect during the summer months. A bike path that is well maintained. Paddle boards and jet skis are available to rent. The aquarium is at the park too - we didn't go in, maybe next... More

Waterfront Park is to the west of downtown along the Lake Champlain shoreline and has a beautiful view of the Adirondack Mountains across the lake. It is home to several large music and food festivals (none while we were there). The Burlington Bike Path runs along its eastern border. The park is immediately adjacent to the Community Boathouse, the ECHO... More

This is a beutiful area to visit. Along the waterfront there is plenty of room to stroll and take in the beauty of the lake. Sunset is nice! The only reason i didn't rate this as 5 stars is because I prefer the sunsets on the west coast of Florida, on the islands, in the Golf of Mexico. But this... More

Very pretty waterfront - lots of boats and people-watching, and the view across the water is lovely, the mountains in the distance are incredible. There are porch-swings to sit on, although they get a lot of sun in the afternoon. Lovely place to enjoy an ice cream or a picnic.

We rode our bikes through Waterfront Park on the way back to our campground (North Beach) from dinner and stopped to see the sunset. Very pretty and the colors over Lake Champlain were magnificent. Felt safe riding through with my family at dusk.

We finished our day in Burlington on the waterfront, so my son could do some long boarding. We enjoyed the swings, view, art and historic markers. Busy even after dark and seemed safe.

Our grandchildren live in Burlington and this is one of the places that we love to walk to with the girls and enjoy the views of Lake Champlain and the Adirondack Mountains across the lake. We enjoyed seeing Garrison Keiller's show the Prairie Home Companion here a few weeks ago. Great show and a good location.

Look in the newspapers and ask locals, “What is happening this week at the Waterfront Park, and Battery Park, and the Church Street Marketplace”? Both parks are almost side by side, and you can see fireworks shot off at Battery from Waterfront. So please ask, and find out before you go! From the Burlington marina, close to the south end...
