  • I would not recommend visiting this park - we went for the view, expecting to find a well maintained park setting. Unfortunately we found it to be littered with garbage, and occupied by vagrants...  more »

  • Nice little park for an afternoon stroll. We stayed near the park and walked down one day, it was nice but not something I would go out of my way for. The views are nice and some good historical...  more »
  • Absolutely stunning. Burlington Vt has some amazing views as well as people! I'd even say they're nicer than most Canadians! I miss it already. Thanks VT!
  • Is a really pretty area. My only complaint is that the should be more (usable) bathrooms, especially for large events. When my mom and I were there on Sunday afternoon for Pride Day, there were two port-a-potties in addition to the two single- stall restrooms, but the two port-a-potties were locked with the kind of key lock you ot on lockers.
  • The Sunday I arrived up here was absolutely stunning! I had no idea there was going to be an LGBT event going on, but I was so glaad it happened on the day I came up!!! That drag show was GORGEOUS
  • This was a nice park. It overlooks Champlain from a higher altitude than by the waterfront parks where most people go. I thought his park was very peaceful because of that. They also have a stage space where music can be played. This park is a little out of the way but it's not a far walk and it's well worth it!
  • One of the best places to visit in Burlington. Beautiful views over looking Lake Champlain. Nice grassy area with concerts during the summer. Unfortunately it's become a hangout spot for groups of people who drink FourLoko at 10am. Would be nice if there was more recreation available here. A basketball court maybe?
