Great place to walk and chill. Enjoy the view and mellow vibes. Foam brewers is close by to grab a beer and there are plenty of benches and swings to hang out in.

Worth checking out the views of Lake Champlain. Great area to stroll along the water and have a maple creamee (so good!) along the way.

It's been 28 years since I've been back to Burlington. I don't remember it being like this! Go Bernie, what a lovely place!!!! Time it right, and you could also see the most breathtaking of sunsets!

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!

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.

Absolutely. It may not be the law, but it should be! Everyone should have a dog at the waterfront park! (But bring a leash!)
