Penny For Parks Approved by voters in 2008, Penny for Parks is BPRW’s primary capital resource for park improvements and is supported by a dedicated tax. PFP funds are reserved exclusively for parks capital improvement needs. Eligible projects include the repair, renovation, replacement, or expansion of existing park facilities as well as the construction of new facilities in existing parks. Derived from the Grand List, the average annual PFP allocation is ~$350,000. Targeted improvements include playgrounds, courts, athletic fields, park facilities, standard equipment replacement, emergent/urgent projects, and staffing support. BPRW welcomes your park improvement suggestions! So, if you have any ideas, please let us know. Complete the online form or request a copy via mail. Park improvement suggestions are accepted year-round, with an interim deadline of December 31st for consideration in the upcoming fiscal year. BPRW staff then reviews, rates and prioritizes the parks project list, including all public project request, each spring. Highlights of recently completed projects include: Oakledge Park restroom renovation, Starr Farm Park playground replacement and expansion, court & field improvements, and improvements at Roosevelt Park.

Bike Path Rehabilitation The 8-mile Burlington Bike Path connects our parks and waterfront including North Beach, Leddy Park, the Urban Reserve, Waterfront Park, Perkins Pier, and Oakledge Park. The path is our largest multi-use recreational facility supporting cyclists, runners, walkers and beyond. Phase 1a construction, from Perkins Pier through Waterfront Park, was completed in the summer of 2015. Improvements included the realignment of the path through Waterfront Park, the formalization of a former eroding maintenance road with drivable grass pavers, the improvement of the Maple, King and College Street intersections, and the visual designation of the path in busy locations, executed through green paint. Phase 1b construction through the Urban Reserve, slated for spring 2016 construction, will realign the Bike Path proximate to the lake for improved user experience, remove the majority of the old industrial concrete and asphalt remnants and former path alignment, replace previously impervious surfaces with vegetation and improve storm water management, bring the path up to current standards, refresh the dog park, and introduce pause places at specific locations.

PARKS FOUNDATION OF BURLINGTON Philanthropy, Stewardship & Partnership: for the Love of Our Parks.

The Foundation is a separate entity, independent from the City of Burlington and the Parks, Recreation & Waterfront Department, formed as a tax-exempt non-profit charity governed by its board of directors. Its purpose is to seek opportunities to enhance parks assets and programs through specific initiatives. It is not designed to fill budgetary shortfalls in the Department’s operating expenses that would normally be the responsibility of the City. The Foundation seeks stewardship and philanthropic opportunities for self-sustaining support, including in-kind contributions that will not impose a burden on the City of Burlington’s Parks, Recreation & Waterfront Department’s annual operating budget. The Foundation applies for grants for which government agencies are not eligible. It solicits and accepts planned gifts that provide support for future improvements to our city’s recreational resources. As an entity separate from the City, the Foundation invests and manages endowment funds.

Burlington Parks, Recreation & Waterfront • Spring / Summer 2016


Recreation & Nutrition Drop-In Program June 20 – August 12 Monday-Friday | 11A-2P Franklin Square, Riverside Apartments, Baird Center, Roosevelt Park This is a drop-in style recreation program that takes place at four sites across the city. There are no fees or enrollment required and all staff-led activities are free. The Burlington Summer Meals Program provides free lunch and snack for kids daily and additionally kids take weekly field trips. A growing number of families are in need of this program. Family food budgets that rely on school breakfast and lunch are stretched in the summer and put children at risk of food insecurity. We believe a comprehensive approach is necessary to address the increasing number of families facing this risk. In response, we not only offer the same meals that children receive at school, but we are also offering nutrition education, fitness activities and opportunities to garden.

WHAT WE’VE DONE TO HELP In 2015, the program served over 3,855 free lunches to over 200 Burlington children, averaging 98 lunches served daily.

ACTIVITIES OFFERED Field Trips Designed to help participants gain a greater sense of community. Coordinators at each site collaborate to offer opportunities to discover Burlington’s beautiful parks and helpful community resources. Past trips included visits to the ECHO Lake Aquarium, Mazza’s berry picking, swimming at North Beach, reading at the Fletcher Free Library and more.

Gardening Through lessions from experienced horticulturalists, the children plan, plant, maintain and harvest the local garden at the BACG site at Star Farm Park. These activities connect the children to their environment and the food they eat.

2016 GOALS

Physical Activity Nutrition Education Parent Involvement Community Resources This project is made possible through collaboration with the Burlington Housing Authority.

Nutrition Activities The program’s comprehensive approach to nutrition education is comprised of daily hands on activities and nutritious meals, provided by the Burlington School Food Project that meet the USDA’s Child Nutrition Guidelines. Their mission is to connect students and their families with whole, fresh, and local foods to improve student learning about nutrition and the health of our community.

The site is also host to many events throughout the year, making it Burlington’s premier outdoor venue.

BATTERY PARK

Battery Park, at the top of Battery Street, is a great place to relax, take in the view and bring the kids to the playground. Built as a military camp during the War of 1812, American gunners, successfully defended Battery Park against an attack by a British squadron in 1813. A decorative cannon in Battery Park commemorates this historic battle. Other noteworthy monuments within the park include a statue of Vermont’s famous civil war General William W. Wells and a red oak sculpture of “Greylock” after a renowned Abenaki Indian chief. Not only does the park offer some of the most spectacular waterfront views, the BAND SHELL, which is home to the Thursday night concert series for six weeks in the summer.
