Work continues on Burns Parks renovation

Work expected to be completed in mid-September

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – Burns Park near La Crosse’s downtown will have some new features coming soon.

This week crews are busy adding new playground equipment, chess tables and new landscaping to the park at the intersection of 7th and Main Streets.

Work started in April.

Members of the city Parks and Rec Department partnered with community organizations including the Downtown Neighborhood Association.

“It’s important to involve the community. So it was really nice for us to work with the neighborhood association and the surrounding neighbors to be able to make a park that they want to come to,” said Kat Barkhahn.

The project is expected to be completed the mid-September.
