History

The Lake Champlain Land Trust worked with community leaders, including Bob Creller and the rest of the Alburgh Selectboard, and our partners to purchase and save this incredible section of Lake Champlain frontage before it was to be developed in 2007.  The Lake Champlain Land Trust and Vermont Housing and Conservation Board retained a conservation agreement (also known as a conservation easement) before donating the land to the Town of Alburgh.

The bike path crosses private roads along the route to the village so please be careful crossing roads and respect private property off of the trail.

Partners

Alburgh Lakeshore Park was conserved in partnership with the Town of Alburgh, Vermont Housing and Conservation Board, Local Motion, and the Lake Champlain Land Trust.
