The brand new Burnsville Lions Playground at Cliff Fen Park is sure to be a favorite destination for Burnsville residents. 

The playground has 87 play pieces and is able to accommodate up to 265 children at one time. Play pieces are geared toward children of all ages. There is plenty of room for everyone to run, slide, swing and climb!

In addition to the new playground equipment, the City has also added electricity and Wi-Fi to the shelters and park.

Cliff Fen is used widely for family reunions, birthday parties, neighborhood gatherings and families just wanting to have fun. Other amenities include three picnic shelters, a volleyball court, soccer/football fields, nature trails and scenic wetland.


Burnsville Lions Club Donations
During its April 22, 2014 meeting, the Burnsville City Council accepted a donation for $70,000 from the Burnsville Lions Club to be used to add a “splash pad” play area to the Burnsville Lions Playground at Cliff Fen Park. Construction of the addition is anticipated to begin in the fall of 2014.

A splash pad is a water play area for people of all ages – with spraying fountains and other water features, but little or no standing water. Preliminary designs for the splash pad include an area that is approximately 2,000 square feet with 12 to 15 water features. Park visitors will be able to turn on different zones so that water only flows in areas where people are playing. It will be designed to fit the look and theme of the existing Lions Playground structures.

Learn more about the splash pad in the Summer 2014 Burnsville Bulletin.


In 2013, the club donated $50,000 to add the finishing touches to the former Skyland Playground. The new Lions Playground opened to much fanfare on June 7, 2013. While details for the 2014 addition are still in the works, representatives from both the City and Lions Club are excited about the continuing partnership.

“Our club is committed to growing in the community as the service needs require,” said Burnsville Lions Club Incoming President Steve Knudsen while presenting the donation at the April 22 meeting. “We are committed to continuing to grow our partnership with the City of Burnsville.”
