Terrace Oaks Park is treated as two parks – East and West – by the City of Burnsville. However, for the purposes of a visitor, they are the same large park. Terrace Oaks West is a large community park; while Terrace Oaks East is a 4-acre neighborhood park in the northeast corner of the property. The combined parks feature playgrounds, trails, sports courts and fields and picnic areas. There are also biking trails in the summer and cross-country ski trails in the winter. Weather permitting, the mountain bike trails are open April 1 through Oct. 31.

Winter at Terrace Oaks Park

During December through February, this is one of two parks in Burnsville that maintains cross-country ski trails. The park has three groomed ski trails that are considered advanced because they wind through heavily wooded and hilly areas. These trails are not open to skijorers. However, walkers, snowshoers, skijorers and leashed dogs are welcome to use the ungroomed trail. Trail hours are 5 a.m. to 10 p.m during the ski season.
The park has a weekend chalet that is open when weather permits from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

Birthday Parties at Terrace Oaks Park

Located in the west park, a picnic shelter with attached indoor space can be rented for birthday parties and other private events. It can accommodate up to 100 people with indoor seating for up to 30 and outdoor seating for another 45. Call the park for more information or to reserve a space.

Terrace Oaks Savanna Restoration

The City of Burnsville is conducting an ongoing oak savanna/oak woodland restoration program. The oak and woodland area will eventually cover 19 acres of the north-central portion the park. The project began with buckthorn removal and canopy thinning followed by buckthorn control and native wildflower seeding.
