The city thinks they are unsafe —high water levels – decided to close the following areas:

Informal paths along Tuck Creek from Regal Road to Tuck Park

The floating public docks and pedestrian ramps at the LaSalle Park Marina boat launch

The pedestrian bridge at the waterfront trail is also closed (at LaSalle Park)

The beach at Burlington Beach Regional Waterfront Park—the Beachway (closed May 17, 2017)

Recent rains have damaged the banks of Tuck Creek below Regal Road, making the informal trails very dangerous to any pedestrian or cyclist.

Flooding LaSalle Park ramp

High water has also created unsafe conditions at the public boat launch and the pedestrian bridge leading to the LaSalle Park breakwater. The floating docks and pedestrian ramps will be removed early next week until the lake level recedes. The public launch will remain open at this time.

Flooding - LaSalle Park bridge

Bridge at LaSalle Park almost washed out.

Residents are warned to stay away from the noted creek block and park areas until the repairs have been made and exercise caution at our waterfront parks during this period of record high lake levels.
