“Waterfront Park is a large regional park located to the west of downtown along the Lake Champlain Shoreline. This park is home to several large music and food festivals, with the Burlington Bike Path running along its eastern border. The park is immediately adjacent to the Community Boathouse, the ECHO Museum, and Lake Champlain Sailing Center. The park can be accessed via College & Lake Streets and Penny Lane. Parking is available at the nearby Pease lot.”

Park
“A lovely easy to moderate hike (or drive) affording spectacular westerly views of Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks. We recommend hiking the trails for more of a "hiking" experience though it is perfectly fine to hike along the road. The hike is about 1-1.5 hours. ”

Park
“Red Rocks Park, in South Burlington, is a gem loved by locals and visitors in all seasons. The park is open year round with summer parking inside the park for easy access to the beach. In the off-season (Labor Day to Memorial Day), parking is available outside the gates, and the trails are open for hiking and cross-country skiing in the winter. Many years ago, Red Rocks used to be the place where the "bad boys" jumped off cliffs into Lake Champlain. Cliff-jumping is no longer allowed, but there is a sandy beach available for swimming, a wooded picnic area, and 2.5 miles of wooded trail with fantastic views of Lake Champlain and the Adirondack Mountains. Leashed dogs are welcome, and it is a very popular spot for dog walkers, joggers, and hikers. The Lake Trail, which is mostly hard-packed gravel, meanders along the cliffs, providing numerous vistas and places to stop and take in the views. There are barriers between the trail and the edge of the cliffs for safety, and signs warn that cliff jumping is forbidden with fines of up to $600 for those who choose to ignore the warnings. Several other trails wind through the woods, which are mostly cedar and hemlock with a few hardwoods mixed in. When Red Rocks Park is open to cars in the summer months, there’s a daily parking fee of $5 for residents and $8 for non-residents. There is a restroom and changing area available next to the beach.”

State / Provincial Park
“Sand Bar State Park takes its name from a natural sandbar between South Hero Island in Grand Isle County and the town of Milton on the Vermont mainland. The park is on the mainland, or eastern end, of that sandbar. The sandbar itself is the result of the Lamoille River, over tens of thousands of years, washing sediment downstream from the present Lamoille Valley. The river borne material sank to the bottom as the river emptied into the lake, eventually filling the lake to create the marshland south and east of the park, and the sandbar to the west. ”
