Description

Oakledge Park has a variety of offerings including two beaches, rocky lakeside cliffs, the Burlington Earth Clock, bocce ball courts, a playground with universal access features, tennis courts, picnic shelters, and a tree house. Lesser known are the networks of trails inside the park. Winding from north to south, the Burlington Greenway Bike Path offers a route through the middle of the park, and is slated to be upgraded to the standards of the northern sections of the Greenway in 2021. In the southern portion of the park, the Upper and Lower Wetland offer places to watch birds and hundreds of newly planted trees grow. Dirt trails connect the wetlands through the woods and mowed paths offer ways through the new plantings.
