Memorial Park

Memorial Park has the distinction of being Webb City's first park. Located at the corner of Ball and Daugherty Street, the lot for the park was purchased in 1920 and officially dedicated on June 14th, 1921 (Flag Day). The land was purchased as a reflective park where the memories of those Webb City veterans who lost their lives in World War I could be honored and cherished by the entire community. A Memorial Board was erected in tribute to these veterans. In 1956, a granite Veterans Memorial marker was erected to replace the Memorial Board. On November 2nd, 2007, the Veterans Memorial was once again remodeled to include the names of the 77 Webb City veterans who fought and died in five wars: The Spanish-American War, World Wars I and II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War.


Today, in addition to the Veterans Memorial, the park also showcases its original 1921 bandstand, which was recently renovated by the Parks and Recreation Department in 2010. Other more current park amenities include an ages 5-12 playground module, a 4 seat swing-set, a basketball court, and several new picnic tables and park benches for friend and family outings.
