Welcome to Burnsville! We're Glad You're Here!

On behalf of your neighbors, community members, local businesses and organizations, we’d like to welcome you to Burnsville.

Whether you’ve called Burnsville home for days or decades – just stopped by to visit our many shops, restaurants or entertainment venues – or are on your way to or from work – you can count on one thing, we’re glad you’re here!

Burnsville boasts nearly 2,700 businesses (many in the areas of science, technology, healthcare, engineering and math); hundreds of shops and restaurants (including the 1.2 million-square-foot Burnsville Center); more than 75 parks and miles of open spaces; a 1,000-seat regional theater – the Ames Center – that draws acts and attendees from far and wide; and many more amenities than you can imagine.

Our neighborhoods are friendly and safe – and ideal for young professionals, growing families and active seniors.

Our City also values partnerships with residents, private businesses and other government agencies to help keep taxes low and continue to provide unparalleled service to the 60,000-plus people who call Burnsville home.

We continue to be proud of Burnsville’s commitment to quality, making our community a truly desirable place to live and do
