If you are anywhere near Joplin, do stop at the Cunningham Park. To stand and look around what has obviously been rebuilt gives perspective to the enormity of devastation. 161 lives lost. Bring the kiddos, lots of park fun to burn off energy.

This is so beautifully done. This is where the tornado Memorial is. We lost our uncle in the tornado so i go there to remember him. Just every thing they did to this park is wonderful. Thank you Joplin for a wonderful place.
