Oakledge Park marks the Southern end of the Burlington bike path. Once home to the Webb family's Oakledge Manor, it now boasts picnic shelters, playground equipment and a stony swimming beach (no lifeguards, though). It's also home to the first handicapped accessible treehouse built in a public park. A short walk north takes you to the site of Burlington's Earth Clock. Stick around for the spectacular sunset.

Student Guide Details

You’ll have a ball at this beautiful South End park, which is home to tennis, volleyball and bocce courts — and the occasional hipster kickball league. Its picnic pavilions, spacious lawns and clean beach are nice, too.
