Waterfront park is a great place to get a view of the lake and the Adirondack mountains. On a good day the sunsets are spectacular!

This is a nice place to spend a little time while taking in the views of Lake Champlain. There’s a short boardwalk to stroll on and wooden swings to sit on and relax. There’s also a bike and jogging path. If you have more time,...More

A beautiful place to sit and watch the sunset. There are many benches along the path. There are also some swinging benches that are nice. Sometimes musicians set up and are nice to listen to. Very nice.

Nice walk along the lake. We did this while we were waiting for our cruise time. Nice to look out at some of the boats in dock.

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