WATERFRONT PARK & THE BOATHOUSE In 1988, the City constructed the BURLINGTON COMMUNITY BOATHOUSE, designed by Marcel Beaudin and modeled after the 1887 Lake Champlain Yacht Club (which was located in the same place). At the time, it was the only true waterside public access on the northern waterfront. Construction of Waterfront Park and the Promenade followed in 1991. Waterfront park offers open space to play, take in the lakefront views along the boardwalk and access the Burlignton Greenway (Bike Path). 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 park features a BAND SHELL, which is home to the Thursday night concert series in the summer.

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.

To learn more and to make a tax-deductible donaton, please visit: www.parksfoundationburlington.org e-mail info@parksfoundationburlington.org or call Board Chair John Bossange at 802.578.7468. ENJOYBURLINGTON.COM • (802) 864-0123

Burlington Greenway Path Rehabilitation The 8-mile Burlington Greenway connects many of our neighborhood, regional and waterfront parks 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. Hundreds of thousands of trips are made along the path every year by recreationalists and commuters alike. Phase 2 (from North Beach to the Winooski River) of the multi-phased rehabilitation project was substantially completed in 2017. The final stretched of top-coat paving, line painting, landscaping and intersection work will be completed this Spring 2018. Plans for 2018 construction also include new Pause Places at North Shore (the staircase leading to the water) and Leddy Park crossing. We will keep you updated on construction schedule and path schedule on our website. You can also sign up for email notifications on that page!

LEARN TO RIDE BIKE CLASS

May 19 and June 9 Leddy Park 10:00A-11:00A | ages: 3-5 12:00P-1:00P | ages: 5-7 2:00P-3:00P | ages: 7 and older

Join Local Motion for our annual kids’ Learn to Ride class at Leddy Park. We know that the process of teaching children to ride a bike can be challenging for both kids and parents. Let us do the teaching! We’ll use the “balance method” with pedal-less bikes, allowing kids to get a feel for the balance they’ll need - without any fear of falling over. The learning process is different for everyone, so we can’t make any guarantees - but we expect most kids to come away from our Learn to Ride class able to confidently ride on two wheels. This class will be fun and stress-free for you and your kids. We will supply the balance bikes, but you should bring a pedaled bicycle for your child. Please be sure that the pedaled bicycle is in good working condition, and fits your child well. We will also have fun things for your kids who already know how to ride! Helmet decorating supplies, games, and more!

The class is free for Local Motion members and their children. For non-members, the cost is $20 per family if you pre-register, and $40 per family on the day of the event. Please register by going here: http://www.localmotion.org/learn_to_ride_class
