The splash pad is open daily 9 a.m. - 9 p.m. the third weekend in May through the third weekend in September, weather permitting.
To activate the water, push the silver button in the center of the blue drain (see photo on right). The water automatically shuts off after several minutes if the button isn't pushed again. Visit the Park Rules page for more information.
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 began in May 2015.
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. 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.”
