Beautiful view of Lake Champlain. Went for a stroll along the lake and this park is well maintained with all the necessary amenities. Gorgeous fall views across the park with beautiful buildings in the background. Time well sent.

A bit chilly today but the park was still full of folks walking, talking and hanging out. Good place to sit and relax. I'm sure it's vent more active in the warmer months.

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