The Whimsical Playground In Minnesota That’s Straight Out Of A Storybook

When it comes time to play, Minnesotans know how to do it right. We play hard when we can, because we know that sooner or later it’s going to get too cold to be outside. Because of this, we have plenty of cool playgrounds to use when the urge to swing and slide takes over. But there’s at least one little-known playground that goes above and beyond a simple swing set. The Big Woods Play Area at Lake Rebecca Park Reserve is a charming playground that looks like it comes straight out of a storybook.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.

We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
