Burnsville Reviews

I have been living in the city of Burnsville for 2 years now and I have to say that my experience here has been great! Gas stations and stores are very close where I live which makes it easy for me to stop by whenever I need gas or to shop. I also really like that I have easy access to freeways and the Burnsville center! One thing that I would like to see is improvement in the winter time. I really would like for snow plows to clean more in residential areas since it can be a struggle driving in these areas especially after a winter storm.
I love Burnsville. I chose to live here because of the many compliments this got from my friends. The school district is very organized and commited; the staff are very kind and helpful.
I love burnsville because it's a clean city.
I prefered to live here because this city is surrounded by many medical centers. The emergency room is a few minutes away all around the city.
The law enforcement are friendly and understandable.
Another important aspect of Burnsville is, availability jobs.
I live near a park with a small pond that is great for walking around during the summer. The park is new and very safe for kids to play around. There is also a field for sports and an ice hockey rink that is used as a pet area during the summer. I would definitely recommend this area to anyone with kids/pets looking for a suburban home in a reasonably priced area! The traffic is minimal and neighbors are relatively quiet but very friendly and welcoming. Compared to other suburban areas it may be less 'developed' however the "Heart of the City" is a mile down the road where several restaurants / coffee shops and a supermarket are available within walking/biking distance.
