Destination Playground – Willmar, MN
The Willmar Lakes Area is home to almost 100 playground facilities which makes it the perfect, family-friendly vacation destination. The most recent addition is Willmar’s Destination Playground. Built in the spring of 2017, it’s one of the largest, fully-accessible playgrounds in the country! This amazing $1 million facility was completely funded by private donations, and was built from the ground-up in only nine days by a huge team of local volunteers. We are proud of our community members and their involvement, as this is a true labor of love. Special thanks to all the dedicated volunteers who worked together in the wind and rain to make this playground happen. It truly is a gem and is fun for all ages!Located in Robbins Island Park, learn more about this NEW amenity and come play with us!
