Burlington Waterfront Park is a gem. It starts at the boathouse, which is a good place for a snack. It runs for about a quarter mile along the lake and includes adult swings, a large meadow that people use for to toss balls or other things. The park police are present to make sure everyone enjoys the park and nobody... More

Had great benches, and swings to sit on and enjoy the view. They were doing work on it but it looks nice and had great views.

The views of Lake Champlain are breathtaking. Bring the family and go down by the water for a picnic. Grab some grub on Saturday Morning at the Farmers Market on Church Street and head down by the water for a snack and a great view. Watching the ferry's come in and out is tons of fun for the kiddos.

Came here in my campaign to get lost and see things that caught my eye. It's still a bit cool out, but watching the sunset here is a must do. The view comes alive with colors and there is a relaxed feel about it.

Unfortunately, I came here when it was a cold and windy day, and I wasn't properly dressed, so it wasn't exactly comfortable to stay for too long. But I will say that the view is beautiful, and where the ice was starting to melt, I could see that the water in the lake was crystal clear. Definitely worth a stop,... More

Nice place to go and walk the boardwalk and just relax and catch a gorgeous sunset. Had to pay for street parking, but it was worth it.

An A++ experience all around. The grand design by Mother Nature and City Fathers was very successful. A must see, must stroll experience for any visitor.

We came to see the lake. It was frozen solid! Even being completely frozen with people walking all over it it was still beautiful. I recommend checking it out!
