Rebuilding Joplin - A New Cuningham Park

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.

This is one of the new play structures.

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