ouri s m ART Bayliss Park & Veterans Plaza 1st Ave. & Pearl St. • Bayliss Park has been a focal point of the downtown area since Samuel S. Bayliss donated the 2.15 acres in 1853. The park received a facelift and was rededicated in spring, 2007. Veterans Plaza, dedicated July 4, 2003, was sculpted by famed artist John Lajba. The wall lists those who died or are missing in action from the Civil War through Desert Freedom. The fountain and surrounding area were designed by sculptor Brower Hatcher and landscaped by Dolores Silkworth.

BAYLISS PARK

Broadway Fountain Broadway & Pearl St. • The restored cast iron fountain was built in New York in 1890 and was once the centerpiece of Bayliss Park, the city’s oldest park. In May 2000, a dedication ceremony was held for the completely refurbished “Old Rusty”. An old-fashioned looking clock tower, lampposts, and flowerbeds have since joined the fountain area.

Eagles of Honor Project Eagles of Honor are being sculpted by Neola artist Russell Christensen. Christensen and many towns across Pottawattamie County have a vision of showing thankfulness and pride by creating a Veteran’s Monument in every community. In stunning bronze, each eagle is unique. Each monument is a testament that our county is strong, united, filled with hard working people who appreciate freedom and want to honor those who preserve freedom for America. For more information, log onto http://www.eaglesofhonorproject.com/homepage. html.
