EDEN PRAIRIE— Each prescribed burn is expected to last one to three hours, dependent upon weather conditions.

Studies have shown that prescribed burns help to rejuvenate growth and ensure long-term survival of the native prairie by controlling invasive plants. After burning, the ground will appear charred, but plant regrowth will still occur in the spring and produce a variety of new species.

Prescribed burn locations

  • Crestwood Park
  • Community Center
  • Pheasant Woods Park
  • Pioneer Park
  • Round Lake Park

If you have any questions, contact the City’s Parks and Natural Resources Division.
