A new playground is coming to Willmar in the summer of 2017. This is a community effort from the planning to the construction. The build dates are May 16-25. A hard working group of volunteers is working right now to plan the playground and raise the money to build it, and organize our build. Willmar’s Destination Playground at Robbins Island is a community build project.
  • Spider Bouncer

  • 4-Person Teeter Totter
