When the two RV Gypsies first visited The Eternal Flame, the flame had been blown out by the wind. But when they returned on another day, the flame was lit once again. Karen photographed it from several angles to show the different inscriptions all around the monument.

The biggest sculpture the park contains, dedicated in 1999, is the Bicentennial Commemoration statue of John McIntire, Noah Norris, Zane Grey, and John H. Glenn, Jr. There is a plaque to the right of the sculpture that gives a little information about these important people. The sculpture is atop a mound and surrounded by a brick path which allows for a 360-degree view of it. The belt buckle on John H. Glenn has the word NASA on it.
