Blanca Park serves the children of the community. Enlarged in the early 1980's, the park is extensively used during the summer and good days in winter.

Equiped with swings, climbing bars, slides, and a tennis/basketball court, it is used by all ages. The park also features a covered picnic area.

The old rock well house was originally in the center of the intersection of Main Street and Broadway. When Main Street became Highway 160, the well house was moved to the present position on the northeast corner of the intersection. The original well was an artesian drilled in 1908-1909 to serve the whole community in the early years of the Town.
