Goats Come to Civic Center Park
Following the successful goat program in Saint Paul, Burnsville approved a pilot program to bring goats into a two-acre area near the Ice Center to help control buckthorn in 2018 for a three-year prescribed grazing ilot project. Goats are great at controlling buckthorn and other woody species that take over natural areas. For more information and photos visit Burnsville's website.
Birthday Parties at Civic Center Park
Although it doesn't offer a shelter, the picnic area at Bicentennial Garden can be rented for an affordable $23-$28/hour. With a short walk across the park to the Burnsville Skate Park, this could be a budget-friendly option for a birthday party for an older child.
Car Seat Safety Checks
The Burnsville Police Department is found within this park. Burnsville PD offers monthly scheduled Car Seat Safety Checks. Pre-registration is required. As part of the 30 minute safety check, certified car seat technicians will demonstrate how to properly install your car seat.
