We spent several hours here after having dinner on Church Street. The scenic views are great, and the atmosphere was calming. Several families/couples were enjoying picnic meals on the grass. They just need more benches!

Clearly, this is a well-loved area by both locals and tourists. I heard people great each other by name and I saw plenty of people, like myself, with maps. Unlike a lot of areas, I felt no discomfort in looking at a map or taking tons of photos. The sunsets are beautiful from this location. And don't forget to stop... More

This park is so beautiful! You can sit on the grass or on the swings on the boardwalk while reading a book or catching the stunning sunset. This is a must-see when visiting Burlington. You may even get some live music as you stroll along!

There's a nice walking and cycling path along Lake Champlain. It passes marinas and nice eating places and parkland. The best for me are the views across the lake seeing NY's Adirondack mountains. Good to be there any time of day.

The waterfront park is a nice place to visit for the view of the Lake Champlain and the Adirondack Mountains behind it.

We have been there many times over the last 30 years and have watched it grow and improve. Most recently, we watched an airshow that featured the Thunderbirds. Plenty of space, vendors everywhere, and the lake provided a perfect backdrop for 4 hours of acrobatics in the air. It is by far, the best outdoor venue in Burlington for shows,... More

This was an attractive park with activities for all ages. Preparations were underway for a US Air Force Thunderbirds performance and people were setting up kiosks and other activities. Lots of "Don's Johns," ice cream stands and tourist activities.

The skatepark is world class and worth a visit! Hang out at the top under the shaded roof viewing deck and watch the action!

Great park on water, one cool thing is there is a whole area set aside for rocking along shore, and what people have created is amazing, fun to create with your teenager.
