As the air cools and snowflakes fall, we know winter is coming. Burnsville has a lot in store for you, both indoors and out! Read on for a list of winter activities to take part in this colder season in Burnsville.
Did you know, biking doesn’t have to end when autumn does? The Minnesota Riverfront Park is home to the trailhead of the Black Dog segment of the Minnesota River Greenway Trail. This 3.75-mile segment of paved trail stretches along the river, through the Xcel Energy Black Dog power plant property, to Minnesota Highway 77/Cedar Avenue. It is ideal for walking or biking, and includes an observation deck and wildlife viewing areas on the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge. So grab your fat bike and hit the snowy pavement for a beautiful winter ride.

Stay tuned for info on their New Year’s Eve Celebration!
