Completely renovated in 2012, Baish Veterans Park sits in front of City Hall and honors North Eddy County’s veterans, past and present.  Designed by architect Jose Zelaya of Albuquerque, NM, the park was reconstructed to feature the names of our veterans and the “Freedom’s Fire” sculpture created by Beverly Paddleford of Lander, Wyoming.  This park is place for remembrance, honor and reflection.  Our community cherishes the sacrifices and dedication of all of our country’s veterans.  We invite you to sit or walk among the names and the beautiful art celebrating the sacrifice for freedom.

FREEDOM'S FIRE

This sculpture was designed and created by Beverly Paddleford who was inspired by the fiery trials that our great nation has endured from birth to present day. The Bald Eagle is symbolic of our great nation, always meeting the call to protect freedom, whether at home or abroad.  The sculpture represents America's perseverance and sacrifice to continue the fight of freedom.  The sculpture was unveiled, along with the renovated Baish Veterans Park, in November 2012.
