You can dock your boat at the floating boathouse and get a nice meal. You can park you car and walk the bike path. You can sit on a swing and enjoy the sunset. Or you can do all three

No trip to Burlington is complete without walking along Lake Champlain and enjoying the views from the swings that line the boardwalk. The Lake is simply beautiful and this is a great place to take a walk and enjoy the scenery.

Talk the waterfront park walk to relax and be like a local. People watching is at it's finest. There are cream-mees to be had at several stands. Families, couples, older folks, kids, skaters and boat fanatics are all to be found.

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