This image shows the Burlington waterfront area from Battery Park. The foreground is filled with undergrowth and alone tree growing up from the bank that leads down to the waterfront area. The waterfront is made up of a grassy park and the Burlington boathouse and its surrounding docks in the distance. Lake Champlain is visible with the shoreline further South and an island in the distance as well as the boathouse.
The landscape changes are quite distinct in this image. What used to be a smoky lumber yard has now been replaced by a park and a highly pedestrian friendly bike path and boathouse. This is due to the waterfront restoration that occurred during the last two decades of the 20th century.
