stunning waterfront. Swing chairs are a nice touch. Great for a run or just a walk along the boardwalk

Loved the area, places to eat and drink while people watching right at the waters edge. Fun to watch the boats/ferry's coming/going.

Had a beautiful summer day. Did the little museum, walked the bike path to north beach, came back after a meal in town to catch sunset. The view anywhere along the Burlington waterfront and cliffs is exceptional.

When the weather's nice, the Burlington Waterfront Park is a great place for a stroll. We walked from College Street down to the end of the pier.

Nice place to walk, bike, or people watch. I caution: Do not take the historic trolley. I tried booking the trolley tour and could never get through to the place.

There are plenty of places to grab a snack or a drink, or just benches to sit and relax as well as several waterfront boat tour companies. Really nice views of the sunset as well!

If you are in Burlington, you must take a walk along the waterfront. Try to get one of the swings. It's so nice to just sit and look out at the water.

It was a good park for walking your dog or biking but is similar to many great lakes waterfront parks. You can catch the ferry or book a cruise but parking is a mess. 9 out of 10 people didn't pay that I noticed and who could blame them.
