Sadly the bums have taken over this nice park and other little parks in the immediate vicinity. Like so many other public places, they now live here. I don’t recommend going here after dark.

Really nice views of Lake Champlain. There’s a small playground for kids and art work throughout the park. A quiet place to enjoy the scenery and just be. Close to the Church St Marketplace and to other restaurants and shops.

Seriously! The sunset is a Must see! Plus Beansies Bus at Battery Park offers you dinner from a traveling diner on a yellow school bus! Nice evening treat all around! Historically rich park and great playground. Summer concerts, too!

This park has high views of the lake. However, I would not consider this point to be the best view because the trees are definitely in the way. There are a lot of trees, picnics, and statues, and it's a nice place for a picnic....More

Lake Champlain is absolutely stunning, but we did not feel comfortable visiting the entire area and most overlooks with our young family on a Tuesday night. I did not want to expose my children to the potheads, bums, and other vagrants loitering about the park....More
