The Belen 9/11 Memorial Park was formed one month after 9/11 to remember the innocent lives that were lost on September 11, 2001.
The park is a reminder that freedom is not free. On 9/11, there were 2,997 lives that were lost on that tragic day.
The Belen community gathers on the anniversary of 9/11 to honor the first responders and the fallen warriors who made the ultimate sacrifice post 9/11.
The park contains a "Freedom Wall" with the names of fallen soldiers from New Mexico and those with ties to our state; an 8-foot marble replica of the twin towers; a steel beam from the World Trade Center; an 8-foot wingspan steel sculpture of an eagle; a first responders shovel used at the Pentagon; and a 10,000 pound piece of limestone recovered from the rubble of the Pentagon with a plaque dedicated to the lives that were tragically taken from us on 9/11/01.
