With the continued rise in the popularity of pickleball, residents have expressed a desire for additional dedicated pickleball courts in Burnsville.
Currently, our only courts specific to pickleball regulations are at Red Oak Park and they are highly sought after. We've identified a potential opportunity for a new court location in Alimagnet Park. In 2022, a building was removed from this park and we are considering repurposing that location with pickleball courts.
We want to hear from you. Are you interested in adding pickleball courts to Alimagnet Park? Do you have specifics you would like to share? If this project moves forward, construction would take place sometime this summer and fall.
Our draft for our Alimagnet Park Restoration Plan,focusing on the management of the upland natural areas is complete and we’re looking for your feedback.
We’re hosting a meeting to share the overall plan and future strategies with an emphasis on work that will be done in the next five years, including the 25-acre restoration of the west area of the park. Please note that this plan does not include non-natural amenities like ballfields and trails.
Why do we need a draft? Creation of this plan is the first step for the City to be eligible for the City-County Conservation Collaborative program that provides potential partnership and cost sharing opportunities. This draft was funded by Dakota County and we’re working alongside the County and a consulting firm as we progress to improve natural spaces here in Burnsville.
