Summer in Vermont is the season of outdoor activities and community fun! Spending those beautiful summer days at Veteran's Memorial Park is always a great time. From live music to hiking trails and all kinds of sport fields, there's something for everyone to enjoy. Here’s a guide to making the most of your summer at Veteran's Memorial Park.

One of the highlights of summer at the park is the live music series held every Thursday. Bring a blanket or lawn chair, and enjoy an evening with your favorite local bands and musicians! There’s always plenty to eat as these events are host to some of the best food trucks in the area.

All summer long, South Burlington Recreation & Parks offers a variety of events–most of them free! On International Yoga Day on June 22nd, Rose Bedard instructs a class in the grass (with free ice cream to all attendants!), the July Fitness Series will keep you active with different exercise sessions, Juneteenth is celebrated on 6/19 at 6pm with amazing musicians and food, and join in on the Great American Camp Out also on June 22nd!

Lace up your walking shoes and head for a stroll along the park’s winding trails and pathways. Breathe in the fresh air, soak in the sights and sounds of nature, and enjoy some nurturing exercise. Whether you’re walking solo or with a furry friend, a leisurely stroll through the park is the perfect way to unwind.

Have a picnic! Make your next picnic memorable at Veteran’s Memorial, where you can enjoy fresh air, beautiful scenery, and all the amenities the park offers. 

Speaking of amenities, the 70 acre park provides several! There’s the band shell, pavilion, picnic area, playground, bathrooms and yes, plenty of parking. Regarding sport offerings, there are two regulation sized soccer fields, two multi-use fields, three baseball fields, and two basketball courts.

However you like to enjoy a day at the park, Veteran’s Memorial Park offers something for everyone!
