Trails meander throughout the fertile floodplain of the Winooski River, crossing farm fields, traveling through riparian forests, and over bridges that cross the Winooski's tributaries. Trails are well marked. Lots of birdlife. The Burlington Wildway Trail runs through the Homestead and connects to Ethan Allen Park to the west and McKenzie Park and the Intervale Center to the east.
Park highlights include:
The open air picnic shelter features a large stone fireplace - perfect for toasting marshmallows at your next event! The shelter has electricity and water and there is ample parking. Nature trails, wetland walks and canoe and fishing access make the picnic shelter an inviting location for events, reunions, and parties. Reservations are required. To make a reservation call the Winooski Valley Park District Office at (802) 863-5744.
