A green oasis in the downtown district, the massive Pecan trees in Central Park begin to tell its vast history. Several enhancements have been made in recent years by the City of Artesia, including new picnic benches and a new basketball court. Artesia Clean & Beautiful also recruited several community members to paint the trash receptacles around the park. Artesia MainStreet, along with the City of Artesia, has plans for its future that includes a complete renovation. Central Park continues to be used as popular location for family outings and the Artesia Arts Council's annual Art in the Park event.
