A beautiful fall day. Sharing a lovely stroll along Lake Champlain with so many options to explore. Go on a boat tour, see the aquarium, sit by the water for snacks, dinner or eat a meal. The view of Lake Champlain is beautiful and sunset is amazing. 😊

The waterfront park is very special as it is a quiet place right on lake Champlain and has a magnificent view of the adirondack mts. People enjoy this harborside park in all seasons and the view is spectacular. It's fun to watch the boats if the lake is not frozen.

It is just so beautiful! If you go to Vermont, you must see the sunset by lake Champlain. It is the perfect place for a walk, for playing sports, having a picnic, or even just sitting down and relaxing.

It is a nice waterfront. Too bad we came in early November because it was cold and very windy. I saw some runners, dog walkers and bicyclist during my visit. I can see this place being a nice park during the summer.

Sunset not only brought a memorable scene across the lake but also provided excellent people-watching while walking about. Almost the best part of my visit to Burlington.

It was cold & windy but the waterfront is a cool place to spend half a day if you are in South Burlington. The River Cruise was closed for the season but the park was ope. It is close to downtown Church Street & many good restaurants.

We loved the view of Lake Champlain, and park area around it. Burlington itself we found to be a lovely city, with the University of Vermont and a variety of waterfront activities being an added bonus.

A beautiful view of Lake Champlain. A bit of sketchy people and questionable area by the park. Still a wonderful sight if you are looking to spend a little down time.

The walking path and bike path are separated. Great to not have to worry about bikers. Beautiful views as you walk the lake. We started near the Hilton and walked about 30 minutes.
