A must stop for us every time we come to Burlington

We absoltely love coming to the waterfront park to just relax, enjoy the view and just be. If your lucky enough to get one of the lakeside swing benches that your life is complete.

We went prior to 10am when most things open (ECHO) and loved the quietness. We walked the boardwalk and sat on the swings. Pretty walk, however we had to turn back earlier than we wanted because the path was closed at a certain point. Also didn't realize how much of a "hill" they are talking from the other park just...

I only had an hour to visit, and HAD to check out Lake Champlain and The Adirondacks. Beautiful view and lovely walk. I wish I had time for the boat tour and to check out the Echo Museum.

This venue is absolutely gorgeous. The lake views are breathtaking. Seeing live music at such a beautiful location was definitely a highlight of the trip. Burlington is a great place to visit and I can't wait to come back.

Requires some walking , and a large grassy area for picnics is very wheelchair accessible. If using a motorized wheelchair make sure it has enough power to handle the grade from the Waterfront to nearby hotels and retail. A lot of... More

Great place to see a music event. Waterfront, nice city access and a fun vibe. We saw Grace Porter, but anyone would be super here.

We had a great time in the park. We walked in both directions along the waterfront on a beautifully windy day. Lots of benches to sit on, level paths to follow, playgrounds, skatepark, dog park and restaurants nearby !

We go here all the time, sometimes twice a day. I go early to just enjoy the quiet lake and later to get exercise. In the summer it can get quite crowded. You never know what you may see there - people doing TaiChi and yoga, exercise classes, picnicking and sunbathing. There are swings along the boardwalk that are blissful.... More
