Wilson Neff Park, Statue of Liberty and Peace Pole
Wilson Neff Park - constitutes the "town square" of which most of the community's remaining businesses surround. Maintained and well-manicured year-round, the park includes a playground and is the setting for all of Glen Elder's annual community events.
Statue of Liberty - The symbolic statue is the centerpiece of the park. Lady Liberty was donated to the city in 1950 by Emily Slaven. Glen Elder's American Legion and Auxiliary, Post #143, worked together to provide the funds for the base of the statue.
Peace Pole - The SV24 Alliance traces the settlement of the Solomon Valley to the post-Civil War search for peace, and in this spirit the Alliance elected to place a Peace Pole in the heart of the Solomon Valley to mark Kansas’ 150-year observance. Glen Elder accepted this honor with the monument being placed in the north side of the park.
