Battery Park boasts lake views from atop a bluff overlooking Burlington Bay. Historic signs, statues, and cannons dot the park and tell stories of the rich local history of this land. In the middle of the upper park is a stage often used for concerts and in summer a food truck can be found on Sherman Street. Marble sculptures and flowers grace the sides of the path down Battery Park Extension, which connects the park to College Street. All park paths are paved.
