The Waterfront

The Burlington Waterfront is a natural draw for visitors and residents alike. In the 1980s, then-mayor Bernie Sanders initiated the development of Waterfront Park. By keeping this large, signature space open and available to the public, the city’s eternal connection to Lake Champlain is ensured. Check out the bike path, walk the boardwalk, visit ECHO Center or just sit back and take in a Champlain sunset.
