A giant arrow designed by sculptor and artist Charles Smith of New Home will be installed at Lobo Lake Park on Friday, March 15. The installation will take place at approximately 9:30am. The arrow which stands approximately 22 feet tall will officially place Levelland and Hockley County on the Quanah Parker Trail map. The arrow is a partnership with the Hockley County Historical Commission, The Levelland Chamber of Commerce, the Main Street program and the City of Levelland.
The city council approved placing the arrow on city property located in the Main Street District and is providing workers for the installation. The Quanah Parker Trail honors landmarks, sites, events and artifacts that link this region to the Native Americans who roamed the plains of West Texas.
On Friday, another arrow will be installed in Morton. It will be installed at approximately 1:00pm, one block south of Texas’ Last Frontier Museum in the 200 block of Southwest First Street.
