We visited and strolled along the waterfront. Well maintained area. Good family atmosphere and nice views of the lake. Good way to relax and enjoy the view.

Go there for the Grand Point North festival every September. It's quaint, relaxing and beautiful. If you get a chance, go here to see the sunrise or sunset over Lake Champlain!

Very small park with benches and good views of Lake Champlain. Nice place to sit and rest but that's about it

It's cold in the winter and wet in the spring but Waterfront Park is a great way to for photographers to get great vistas of Lake Champlain and the Adirondack mountains of New York on the other side.

This is a great place to walk around - the bike path goes right through here. It's also a fun place to sit and people watch. The lakefront is also scenic so this is a nice place at sundown.

Very built up waterfront going on here. Magnificent views of Lake Champlain. A fabulous resto/bar right on the waterfront called Splash! Do not miss this spot. One feels like you are at a tropical island with the most stunning views not to mention sunsets!
