BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The city of Burlington, Vermont, is getting its newest public park with the purchase of a 12-acre parcel that includes a beach and bluffs on Lake Champlain in the city’s Old North End.

The Burlington Free Press reports (bfpne.ws/21g1eFY) that Mayor Miro Weinberger and Vermont Land Trust president Gil Livingston announced the $2 million purchase Friday.

The land was formerly owned by Burlington College and includes community gardens, a woodlands path, lakeside bluffs and a beach.

Weinberger said the acquisition is a major milestone in the city’s longstanding goals to preserve open space and create new connections between the Old North End and the waterfront.
