“Average park”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Much like other waterfront parks. Nice views of Lake Champlain. Nothing terribly special about the area but probably worth a visit.

“Beautiful views!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

As an outdoor person I look for things like this when I travel. The park sits right on the water and was very well kept. It was in the mid 70s so it was filled with families and students soaking up the last few weekends of sun. The only negative I would say was that I really didn see any outdoor venders for a snack or water... Not that I want it to be a Main Street of food & beverages but it would have been nice to have a small area out of the way to grab some refreshment.

“Most agreable and beautiful site”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

A very nice place to walk along, nice benches, fantastic view over the lake from the deck, especially before sunset in a semi cloudy afternoon. Mostly recommended to leave the car somewhere and spend some relaxing time in this park. Amazingly picturesque.

“Superb Public Space”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Although finding parking nearby can be challenging and/or expensive (the lot at the foot of College Street is $8), the park, particularly at sunset over Lake Champlain, is worth it. A lot of good people watching, mesmerizing boat traffic, swinging benches and places nearby to get a drink.
