Can’t go wrong with this park. Great for children and adults. The Vermont city marathon is here every year and I try to come as much as I can.

This is a great for all to enjoy. Even pets are welcome on a leash. There are benches that are actually swings. Very nice to sit and watch the sun set over Lake Champlain.
