Alimagnet Park is a large park (almost 180 acres) in Burnsville with family-friendly amenities that include a playground, a hard trail, and picnic areas. There are also sports fields and courts, canoe rentals, cross-country ski trails and a dog park.
Winter at Alimagnet Park
In the winter, families can enjoy snowshoeing, hiking, skijoring and cross country skiing. Alimagnet is one of two parks in Burnsville that keeps groomed trails. These trails are relatively flat and are considered easier trails. This may be the better of the two parks to start with younger kids. Also, unlike Terrace Oaks Park, these trails are multi-use and welcome walkers, snowshoers, skijorers and dogs on leashes. Trails are open from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. during the ski season.
This park has a shelter available for rent for birthday parties and other private events. Book a time by calling 952-894-4500. The shelter accommodates up to 30 people and is priced as follows:
|Per Day (weekdays), Friday - Sunday, Holidays||$80||$100|
|Minimum 2 Hours (Monday - Thursday)||$27||$29|
Bring Your Family Dog to Alimagnet Park
This park has a 7-acre year-round dog park. The dog park is open when the park is open. The dog park is completely fenced in and includes an open grass area, a wooded area, a water area, and a half-mile rock trail. Families who use the park are encouraged to purchase a $20 membership, but membership is not required. Other rules are posted at the park entrance. When outside the dog park, pets need to be leashed and controlled.
