What's their favorite place in Kandiyohi County and why?

Not one place, rather the attention to natural places - i.e. Sibley State Park, Prairie Woods Environmental Center, Robbins Island Park, the many lakes and rivers to enjoy. If I had to select one it would be Robbins Island Destination Playground. It is a perfect example of community engagement and it offers an opportunity for all to enjoy while focusing on our future - children!
