About: In fall of 2019, the Joplin Rotary Club and the Joplin Daybreak Rotary Club combined forces to create a sculpture garden at Mercy Park. Inspired by the Benson Sculpture Garden in Colorado, the Joplin Rotary Sculpture Garden features 12 beautiful, bronze sculptures donated by local community members. The Joplin Rotary Sculpture Garden board hopes that the park will attract visitors and improve the lives of Joplin citizens as it continues to grow. And, with more sculptures slated to arrive at the park in the coming months, the garden is constantly expanding. Patrons can view all the sculptures online at and those interested in donating a sculpture can do so here.
