Artesia, that remarkable little City tucked between Roswell and Carlsbad, New Mexico. 

The City where you immediately receive a generous welcome from the residents and businesses as you arrive.  Artesia has been blessed with strong community bonds between its citizens as well as the unique relationships found between public and private industry leaders. 

The newest addition to Artesia, through the joint efforts of private and public partnerships, is the Artesia Aquatic Center.  This Artesia Bulldog-shaped outdoor recreation pool includes 3 water slides with an additional indoor competition pool and another indoor pool for recreational activities.

These joint partnerships have also allowed our community to construct the Artesia Public Library, a 26,000 square foot modern environment promoting learning.

Combining the efforts of local governments, the Public Safety Complex was built in Artesia housing numerous public safety organizations in the effort of promoting effective communication between agencies.

The Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) Artesia campus celebrates its 30th Anniversary this year.  We are honored to be community partners with FLETC.

For a community of our size, Artesia is blessed to have such vibrant activity as well as beauty in the downtown area and fortunate to have such cultural attractions including the bronze sculptures throughout the City, the Ocotillo Performing Arts Center and the Estelle Yates Auditorium. 

The focus on Faith, Family and Fellowship by the citizens of Artesia has and will continue to be the pride of our City. Come visit Artesia and let us welcome you to the City of Champions.
