“hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

This little area is easily missed if you don't know it's there, but easy to find. from the main drag, just go down the hill towards the water. When you see the Ecotarium you are there. to your right is a nice green park and a boardwalk along the water where boats are docked. there are great bench swings where you can sit and watch the boats, and ice-cream nearby. Great destination for a sunny day! Look for "The Skinny Pancake" if you need a bite to eat!

“Stunning Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

Stunning view of the mountains and Lake Champlain. The boardwalk area is very walker and bike friendly. There are plenty of seats provided to allow visitors to fully enjoy the lake.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

Waterfront Park is simply beautiful. There is a nice walking path but you can also have a picnic, play ball or freesbee or just sit and relax. I absolutely loved the bench-swings overlooking the water: so romantic!
