Beautiful quiet spot. Lots of benches and swings. Not much going on there during the week. Would be nice for some music or something.

Very nice to walk or bike along the lake. Great for taking pics or just sitting to enjoy the beautiful scenery. In walking distance to store and restaurants and Church St. market place. On a sunny day the breeze from the lake is perfect!!!

A nice place to just take in the sunset over the Adirondacs, great people watching also. Is a cree-mee stand, get one and sit take in the views. Musuem is another interesting place right here also.

Great water views from the park and a easy walk. This is not to be missed when visiting Burlington. Recommend you take the tour boat from the dock which takes about an hour and helf.

I heard so much about the waterfront park and the bike path and were very disappointed in all of Burlington. If you don't have to go there i would not waste the time it took us to drive there from Woodstock VT.

The waterfront is lovely. You can even walk right into Lake Champlain, if you want to. There are beautiful flowers and bench swings to relax on. The mountains and the sailboats are worth seeing if you are in the area.

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