Baish Veterans Park

Artesia MainStreet teamed up with the City of Artesia and local veterans in creating a design that enhanced Baish Veterans Park with the installation of the Freedom’s Fire bronze statue, flag holders and a Wall of Honor displaying names of Veterans in the community - past and present. The park was designed to be a place for remembrance, honor, reflection, and to communicate that the community of Artesia cherishes the sacrifices and dedication to all veterans.

The project included the construction of pavers, landscaping and irrigation. A portion of 5th Street, a portion of the alley west of 5th St. south of Texas and the street parking on Texas Ave. west of 5th St were also reconstructed.
