Located on a high point overlooking Waterfront Park, Lake Champlain, and the distant Adirondack mountains, Battery Park is an important historic park on the western edge of downtown. Accessed by Battery, College, and Sherman Streets.

This 14-acre historic park deeded to the City in 1870, provides a panoramic view of Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks with a promenade, playground, monuments, and a bandshell. The park is host to a series of concerts throughout the summer on Thursday and Sunday evenings in the bandshell. The bandshell was built in the 70’s and dedicated to local music director Joseph Lechnyr.

The park is available to rent for events and concerts. Contact Burlington Parks & Rec at 802-865-7247 or
