If You Live In Vermont, You’ll Want To Visit This Amazing Park This Winter
A little cold never scares the good people of Vermont, so grab your hat and coat and be sure to explore all the places we love when the weather is warmer. Let’s start with a winter-friendly park in Burlington – Battery Park. With its amazing views, playground, historical monuments and even ice skating, you won’t want to miss it this winter!
At the top of Battery Street in Downtown Burlington, you’ll find this lovely winter-friendly park.
The panoramic views of Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks are absolutely mesmerizing.
Battery Park is a picture taking paradise in every season - yes, even mud season - so don't leave home without your camera.
Once the snow flies and temperatures reach freezing, it’s time to grab your ice skates and head to Battery Park!
Cruise along on your cross country skis. Or perhaps take your snowshoes and a few friends to keep you company.
Built as a military camp during the War of 1812, American gunners successfully defended the park against an attack by a British squadron.
A decorative cannon in Battery Park commemorates this historic battle.
Two other noteworthy monuments in the park include an 8 foot tall bronze statue of Vermont’s famous civil war General William W. Wells and a red oak sculpture acknowledging the heritage of the American Indians which is named “Greylock” after a renowned Abenaki Indian chief.
This 14 acre park was deeded to the City in 1870 and the monuments provide a wonderful history of important events in Vermont history.
Are you ready to bundle up and hit the playground at Battery Park?
Located in Downtown Burlington, Battery Park can be accessed by Battery Street, College Street and Sherman Street.
