The Winooski Valley Park District (WVPD) was created in 1972 for the residents of its’ member municipalities. Today, the Park District manages 18 parks, over 1,700 acres of natural areas and conservation lands, 22 miles of trails, and over 12 miles of shoreline on lakes and rivers. The WVPD’s member municipalities are Burlington, Colchester, Essex, Jericho, South Burlington, Williston, and Winooski.

The Winooski Valley Park District’s mission is to plan, acquire, and manage lands and waters within the boundaries of its member municipalities in the Winooski River Valley for purposes of conservation, preservation of natural areas, establishment of parks, and resource-based education and recreation.

The WVPD’s Master Plan provides guidance to achieve this mission.
