Beautiful afternoon relaxation.

Amazing transformation of what was once a messy industrial complex to a present well designed park, bike path, skateboard park, dog park, swings and beautiful sunsets.

Relaxing stroll!
Aug 2021
Note, the park is currently under construction in parts. The piece that is away from the construction is very nice, lots of open green space, some beautiful swings to relax on. It's a nice place to sit and relax.

Limited attraction, but nice views
Aug 2021
The lake is nice and looks nice from the walking path. The path has bench swings where you can watch the lake, and there's stuff to do nearby (like ECHO and Foam Brewery). But the park itself is really limited in terms of things to do.

Relaxing Water Views
Aug 2021 • Friends
Burlington offers a beautiful waterfront park. The park includes biking and walking trails. You will also find plenty of seats to admire the water view.

Sunset on Lake Champlain
Aug 2021
We enjoyed this park two nights while staying in nearby Essex. Plenty of parallel parking on nearby streets or parking garages. The vibe is very positive but quiet at the same time. Couples, children, college students, and happy dogs. Many benches to choose from, including porch-like swings. The view of the Adirondack mountains is very beautiful and sunset colors on the water are awesome. Highly recommend.

Pretty, Relaxing and Free
Aug 2021
If you get good weather, plan on strolling around the lake for an hour or more. The distance is quite manageable. There are lovely swings to sit on (though most are in the sun). Beautiful flowers, boats and that sunset! If you are a people watcher, you will not be bored. Nearby are lots of food options, including ice cream. I also appreciated the clean, free well ventilated restrooms that were readily available. Those can be heard to find in some cities. Nice work with this area Burlington!

Not all that much going on
Jul 2021
It's a park near water, you can see boats and mountains. If that is your expectation of a vacation destination, this place is for you. Unfortunately you will also have to deal with the city of Burlington, which is "unsavory".

Lovely boardwalk
Jul 2021
The Burlington waterfront has been developed really nicely, with a boardwalk and swings where you can enjoy the lakefront including sunsets. Very pleasant visit!

Walking in Waterfront Park
Jul 2021
Nice trip. We arrived at approximately 9:30 am and spent the morning walking on the boardwalk while enjoying our breakfast. Waterfront park is positioned right next to ECHO Leahy Center for Lake Champlain as well as the Spirit of Ethan Allan Boat ride and several restaurants located right on the water. There were many benches located throughout the park, and although the boardwalk was small, there was plenty of room to walk around and enjoy the views of the bay.

Tip: I recommend spending 30 minutes or more here in order to enjoy the views and walk around the park.
