  • Has amazing views of Lake Champlain and a nice playground. I wish there was a basketball court though
  • Really like Battery Park. I'd give it 5 stars if it had adequate parking and free would be a nice bonus! The views are great and bike path nearby. They do hold free concerts in the summer and the food trucks are a bonus. Waterfront area is a great place to walk around, dine, and shop. It may not be inexpensive, but Battery Park is free. Echo Center, Boathouse, Ferry, and the Train station are just below a block away. Great for the whole family!
