“Texaco Beach” is the City’s only dedicated Dog Beach providing water access to canines year-round. The beach is conveniently located near the Waterfront Dog Park with access off of the Burlington Greenway.
The property was purchased in 2016 with support from the Vermont Land Trust, Vermont Housing and Conservation Board, Burlington’s Conservation Legacy Fund, National Park Service Land, Water and Conservation Fund and through an anonymous donor. The property stretches from North Avenue to Lake Champlain and includes trails, community garden, home for our Conservation program and future public access to the “Stone Cottage” at 311 North Avenue where we anticipate offering conservation programs and a natural resources library.
Restrooms: nearest restrooms are at North Beach (seasonal).
Parking: the nearest parking areas are North Beach (seasonal) and Waterfront Park (pay at kiosks).
