Willmar Parks & Rec Home Page

All of the City of Willmar Parks & Recreation Spring programs and events scheduled for April and May have been canceled in support of the federal government's guidelines for social distancing and as a result of the Executive Order for Minnesota residents to "stay at home." We want all of our residents and participants to know the City of Willmar Parks & Recreation Staff are working hard and evaluating how our programs will adapt once the current COVID-19 guidelines allow for the latitude of those restrictions. We can't wait to welcome you all back to our programs, events, and playgrounds soon!
Stay Active, Willmar!
