Concern over high water levels prompt Burlington to close creeks, parks
BURLINGTON — The city has closed areas around some local creeks and waterfront parks because high water levels have caused unsafe conditions. The affected areas include: Informal paths along Tuck Creek from Regal Road to Tuck Park: recent rains have damaged the banks of Tuck Creek below Regal Road, making the trails dangerous to pedestrians and cyclists.
The floating public docks and pedestrian ramps at the LaSalle Park Marina boat launch: they will be removed early next week until the lake level recedes. The public launch remains open.

The beach at Burlington Beach Regional Waterfront Park has been closed since May 17.
The city is warning residents to stay away from these areas until repairs can be made and to be cautious at waterfront parks because of the record high lake levels.
