Named in honor of the Apollo 11 astronauts who first journeyed to the moon, Los Angeles County began construction of Apollo Park in 1969 and was dedicated on November 4, 1972. The park is also home to a replica Apollo Space Capsule on loan to the County from the Smithsonian Institute. This 56 acre aquatic recreation area is part of the Antelope Valley Waste Water Reclamation Project. The park is comprised of 26 acres of three recreational lakes (Aldrin, Armstrong and Collins) and 30 landscaped acres of parkland. This park is considered a "passive" recreational facility.
