Dubbed "The Hub City," Burlington is the county's cornerstone of commercial activity. A mix of old and new, the city has maintained its historic shopping district on Fairhaven Avenue, an old-fashioned main street. Around the corner, the more modern version of shopping begins with a mall, a discount outlet mall an da collection of big-box stores that draw customers from Seattle and British Columbia. Burlington serves its residents with an extensive park system along the Skagit River. Well-used Skagit River Park is a 100-acre gem at the end of South Skagit Street with 20 regulation-sized soccer fields, 24 horseshoe pits, a trail and dike access for pedestrian walking along the scenic Skagit River. The city also maintains Maiben Park, which contains Burlington's Community Building and Senior Center; Alpha Park, the traditional site for the city's decorated 70-foot-tall Christmas tree; and Rotary Park, which offers soccer and softball fields, a concrete skate park and the region's only four-court, outdoor sand volleyball site. Burlington celebrates its agricultural roots and industries with the annual Berry Dairy Days celebration in June on the weekend after Fathers Day. Burlington was platted in 1891 and gained its first post office, school, meat market, sawmill and saloon that year. The railroad company Seattle and Northern built a railroad through town that year. The town was incorporated in 1902. The population today is about 9,000 with a home ownership rate of 65 percent.
