On May 22nd, 2011, the EF-5 Tornado that destroyed about 1/3 of Joplin wiped clean what was once a park in the center of the city, Cuningham Park. About 1 month ago, a large crew of volunteers came to Cuningham Park and made it into an inspired park that gives tribuite to the city and its people with a creative, modern design.
Below are a few pictures of the new Cuningham Park.

|One note about this picture, the building you see in the background is St. John's hospital, which was heavily damaged during the Tornado.|
