We were looking for a nice picnic spot and looked up on Trip Advisor for nice parks to go to. We picked Oakledge after some shopping in downtown Burlington. It was very inviting and we found a picnic table to sit at even though it was quite busy. It was relaxing sitting for awhile watching the swimmers and people doing... More

We loved it here! We went on a warm August day. The water is shallow for a long way out, and the waves are small, and it was surprising warm, so it's a great place for young kids. There are trees lining the beach so we were able to set up our blankets in the shade. The lake is gorgeous.... More

I've been looking for a nice place to swim in Burlington for a while now, and I've finally found it. The water is clear and beautiful, and it's great for swimming, floating, cliff jumping, paddle boarding, and kayaking. Although there is not a very big sandy area, the rocks are large and flat enough that it is very comfortable to... More

There's a good amount to do at oakledge. I've been coming to this park my entire life. There's tennis for tennis players, bocce for bocce fans, grills for cookouts, places for groups to reserve and have an event. There is lots of space and woods trails to walk through. There is a treehouse for fun or for hobos to sleep... More

Oakledge is my favorite place to go for a swim, watch the sunset, have a picnic, or read my book in the summer.

From beautiful, ice-covered rocks in the winter to the large tennis court used in the summertime, Oakledge has it all. If you're looking to hose a picnic, BBQ, tennis match, outdoor party, or just go swimming, definitely check Oakledge out.

Oakledge has it all, swimming, paddleboarding, tennis, bocce, barbequeing, all with the backdrop of Lake Champlain and the majestic Adirondack mountains. There's a daily usage fee for locals and visitors, though some park on the road on the road leading into the park for free and walk in. There is also an accessible tree house and a children's play area.... More

The person who waited on us in the bread shop recommended this place for a picnic. Could imagine it being fantastic in the summer, with beachfront views and even a treehouse!

I haven't been for awhile, but this lovely park on the lake is hard to beat for sunbathing, a picnic or watching the sun set over the Adirondacks.
