Welcome To Willmar Parks & Recreation

Welcome to Willmar Parks and Recreation-

Since 1940 the City of Willmar has offered a wide range of activities for all ages.  From the downtown city auditorium, to Robbins Island or the Community Center and let’s not forget about the Willmar Civic Center. The City of Willmar will continue to offer high level programs and safe operating facilities for all to use for recreational purposes.

New Additions:
A new splash pad was completed at Rice Park this past June. It was a great first summer season and attraction for the community.
The 19,000 square foot Destination Playground at Robbins Island is not just a playground for kids, but will bring out the youth in all!
Miller Park, Welschire Park and Sunrise parks have new equipment and improvements, with Voss Park set to get new equipment with a space theme.


The Willmar Community Center offers a variety of events throughout any given week. The Willmar Community Center hosts many types of Seminars, Celebrations, Meetings, and more. The kitchen facilities are designed to accommodate catering services and Individual rooms are available for rent. The Willmar Community Center welcomes all ages of people to attend the many programs, classes and activities available.

Located downtown, the City Auditorium is home to many of our adult program leagues, gun range, and Memorial Room. Some new programs to check out are Pickle Ball and Co-Ed Basketball!

The Willmar Civic Center is a versatile venue, but primarily operating as an ice hub for many youth and adult skating programs. The Civic center also hosts many dry floor events, expos, and concerts.  

Whether you are looking for a competitive sports league, a venue to hold your next party, or a park to bring the family to; the Willmar Parks and Recreation Department is happy to serve.
