I visited the park with a native of Joplin who saw it for the first time as well; we were both in awe. What a stunning, peaceful place with incredible tributes to those whose lives were lost in the Joplin tornado. The designers did a great job of incorporating memory, peace and hope. Wonderful spaces to reflect, children to run and play and families to be filled with gratitude and hope for the future. It is a memorial so well done that you will leave uplifted and inspired. The photos capture only a small part of the park and don't include the wonderful play areas for children.
This park is clean. There are varied areas for different activities, such as picnics, walking, or playgrounds for toddlers to big kids. Pretty gardens and fountains are scattered about. A play village and basketball courts are included. Memorials to those lost in the tornado are also part of this lovely park. Highly recommend!
