Grow Burnsville is off to a strong start thanks to a first place grant award of $125,000 from the United States Conference of Mayors (USCM) and the American Beverage Foundation for a Healthy America (ABHFA) for their 2021 Childhood Obesity Prevention and Environmental Health and Sustainability Awards.

The Parks Frameworks Plan provides an opportunity to repurpose park space at Civic Center Park. The warming house and outdoor ice rink were slated to be removed sometime in 2021-2024 and we are able to combine the Frameworks Plan and Grow Burnsville to create a space to better serve our community.
