Surprise offers its residents endless events and celebrations every week. The city supports arts education and you'll be able to see various public artworks in every inch of Surprise. Some of the art pieces you'll find in the city are the "Always There, Always Ready" bronze obelisk at the Fire Station No. 301, which is located on the Original Town Site of the early days of Surprise. The obelisk was created by Joe Tyler and is dedicated to the city's brave firefighters. The Heritage Tree by Connie Whitlock and some residents of Surprise is a mosaic tree whose leaves depict where the artists lived before moving to Arizona. It's like a dedication to the many people who moved to Arizona to be part of the Surprise community.
