Do you have ideas about Burnsville parks? We want to hear them!

We are taking a comprehensive look at our park system and planning for future development, activation and maintenance of these spaces to provide all citizens of Burnsville with a park system that reflects the wants and needs of our community. There are four ways to participate:

  • Visioning Survey: Help us to understand your current and future vision of our park system
  • Mapping Activity: Drop a pin and tell us about the parks you are most interested in
  • Idea Wall: See something cool? Share it! Upload images of park amenities you would love to see in our park system
