Located in Burlington's New North End, on Leddy Park Road, just off of North Avenue, Leddy Park is Burlington's largest park, with four lighted tennis courts, five soccer/ball fields, a basketball court, squash/racquetball court, natural areas, trails and a playground with restroom facilities. It's 1,800' of lakefront includes a sandy beach and grassy picnic area with plenty of shade, grills and picnic tables.  Leddy Park is accessible via the Burlington Bike Path and has ample parking for beach and park users.  

Leddy Park was purchased by the City in 1970 and named in memory of Judge Bernard Leddy, a 14 year member of the Parks Commission and U.S. District Judge.  In 1973 an ice skating arena was erected within Leddy Park and dedicated in the name of Gordon H. Paquette, mayor of Burlington at that time.  One of the Department's most heavily used facilities, the Gordon H. Paquette Ice Arena houses two skating rinks, a snack bar, pro shop and seating for 1,000. The Arena is open for public skating and a variety of figure skating and ice hockey programs.  For more information, click on Leddy Park Arena.
