The Depot is a nice gathering spot for many local events. Most of these events are put on by the Burlington Parks and Recreation department.

Set in historic downtown Burlington, The Depot is home to so many great events. Almost any weekend you can find food trucks, music,family 5k races in this area. There are many cute shops and restaurants close by and the whole area is easily walkable!
