WILLMAR — The Destination Playground at Robbins Island Regional Park was filled with children and their families enjoying the outdoors Tuesday morning in Willmar.

Thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon brought a quick end to playtime.

As temperatures continue to rise, there is more time to enjoy the sunshine in play-areas across the region.
