    This is a falls area and will have to watch kids closely. You can get right up to the waters edge. Great for pictures and lots of professionals taking group pictures.  more »

    The Grand Falls is just that for the Joplin area. It's a very nice community around there but you should be cautious of the environment, whether the rocks, water, or possibly wildlife. There are trails all around Grand Falls as well as some parks but I would suggest driving to most of those areas.
