Oakledge Park is a staple of the Burlington Greenway. If you need a fun place to take your kids, want to work out in nature, or just a place to sit under a tree, Oakledge provides all of this and more. The audio tour will help build a sense of place with Oakledge, the natural and human history of the park, as well as the wilder aspects of the park

This site, along with many others, was originally home to the Abenaki Nation. We acknowledge the struggle for recognition, land, and autonomy of the Abenaki people. An official land acknowledgement can be found on the Crow’s Path website, and we encourage listeners and readers to learn about the history of the Abenaki people and recognition in Vermont
