Burnside Park

The Burnside Lake Water Park is owned by The Neshoba County Board of Supervisors and managed by The Philadelphia-Neshoba County Park Commission.  The Park was purchased from the Pearl River Basin Development District in January of 2018 before the district was later dissolved by action of the Mississippi Legislature on July 1, 2018.    

Burnside Lake Water Park consists of 115 acres in Neshoba County approximately 5 miles northeast of Philadelphia on Highway 15. The park is located on Burnside Lake, an oxbow lake of the Pearl River. The park facilities include: the Park Auditorium, a boat ramp, oxbow lake, fishing pier, four open-air pavilions, three lighted ball fields, picnicking areas, playgrounds, nature trail, and suspension bridge. Burnside Lake Water Park is operated and maintained by the Philadelphia Neshoba County Park Commission.

The interior of the Burnside Park Auditorium has been recently renovated by the Neshoba County Board of Supervisors and can provide meeting space for family reunions, meetings, and other events in heated and air-conditioned comfort. The space currently has tables and chairs to accommodate150 people and a small stage area. The renovation included new approaches to the building entrances, new doors - including a new roll-up door, new LED lighting, new bathroom facilities and renovation of the kitchen with new appliances. Two new HVAC package units provide heating and cooling for the facility, a new wastewater treatment plant was installed, and a fire alarm system was also added as part of the renovation.

The Burnside Park Auditorium is available for rental via contract from the Neshoba County Board of Supervisors. The rental cost is $200 per day with a $100 deposit (to ensure cleaning and upkeep of the facility).
