The Waterfront Park has 2 advantages; a downtown Burlington location and that too, right by the river. Benches set along the 900 foot stretch let you sit and take in some spectacular sunsets. Life whizzes by as skaters speed down the boardwalk, friends amble long and kids race each other. Festivals and community events are often organized against the surreal backdrop of this park that totally capitalizes on its location. When the sun goes down, grab a bite at the many snack stands and sink into the grass while the strains of live music play in the background.
