The 14 acres Ewert Park now resides, was deeded to the City of Joplin on February 29, 1924, by Mr. Paul A. Ewert and his wife, Sidney T. Ewert. A prominent lawyer and onetime Assistant U.S. Attorney General, Mr. Ewert gave the Park and Pool to Joplin’s African American citizens; but the Park was later opened for all citizens to use. Ewert Aquatic Center, located within Ewert Park, was renovated in 1974, 2003 and is scheduled to be renovated again to become a splash playground.
