A playground for all, and one of the nation’s largest, Destination Playground, located at Robbins Island Regional Park, is a one-of-a-kind, 19,000 square foot, community built playground.
Nestled into the grassy oak hills of Robbins Island Regional Park, Destination Playground is packed with Swings, Merry-Go-Rounds, and Draw Bridges, all on a soft rubbery flooring. The fully-enclosed and accessible Playground offers a safe and fun place for children of all ages and abilities to play and interact while the surrounding area provides seating and gathering areas for families. Ample parking is available near the Playground along with restrooms and picnic shelter facilities for all to enjoy. Be sure to take a walk through the trails or around the lake to take in all of the beauty and recreation that Robbins Island has to offer!
The Playground has a wide variety of innovative and inclusive features that combine to make it fully accessible and safe. The photos highlight some of the most unique features. Security lighting and cameras were placed and different levels of accessible ramps connecting the tree house, castle, slides, climbing ropes and more were incorporated so everyone can enjoy playing. Elements of the playground were custom-designed with input from area children to depict the culture, history, and area of Kandiyohi County. Community members had the opportunity to purchase personalized fence pickets that were placed around the perimeter of the Playground.
If the playground needs maintenance attention, please contact Willmar Public Works at (320) 235-4252. Public Works Superintendent: Gary Manzer.
