  • Excellent tribute to the victims and volunteers of the Joplin tornado. As someone from out of town it was very moving and showed me how much the community was impacted. Has a few memorials, multiple playgrounds for the kids, and even a walled basketball court.
  • Great place to take the kids or just enjoy a nice walk. It has two very nice playground sets, a basketball court, a nice pond, and lots of open space. The park also has memorial for people who tragically lost their lives during the Joplin tornado which is both beautiful and touching. Skeletons of the homes truly paint the picture of how much devastation happened on that dreadful night, but out all of that darkness came this little bit of light with the addition of this wonderful park. Definitely a must visit while you are in town.
  • Nice place to visit. People just seem to have lack of respect for places like this. There was a lot of trash.
  • There are at least 5 pokestops in one small stop. Kids can play in two rypes of parks. Also, there is a huge swimming pool.
  • Awesome park my kids loved it. Great to be restored after the tornado. Bathrooms could have been cleaner.
