Love this place. Kids friendly has a lot of play grounds. Has picnic tables also plenty of shades around the tables.

I've been here many times, and I like it. One issue is the amount of geese poop. It's really gross. It isn't really a big issue, but if your dog likes to roll around on the ground a lot or on things, it's a wreck. My friend's dog had to be groomed because he was coated in it. It wasn't pretty.

The “trail” isn’t the best part. It’s all about the awesome play equipment for your kids! My son loves it, even though it’s windy and covered in bird poo, so it’s fun and entertaining for me. They have the kids size “rock walls” and several play sites separated by bridges so naturally the kids felt like they were somewhere magical. :)

I wouldn't really call this a trail but if you are in a wheelchair and want to get out for a bit...

This isn’t hiking. It’s taking a walk around a fake lake on a paved road.

Absolutely awful. Covered in bird droppings, smells of raw sewage along the east side, bathrooms are very dirty, the grass is dead in 70% of the park, the water is stagnant and green, infested with swarms of gnats along the trail, and very windy.

Absolutely awful. Dead grass and bird poop everywhere. The whole east side of the park smells like strong, strong sewage, so much so that it'a hard to breathe. There are knats all along the trail unless it's windy, and when it is, the wind reaches almost 30mph with nothing else to break it out there. Absolutely awful

It's definitely a man-made park, but there aren't too many options out in this area. If you are looking for a nature hike or wildflowers, you'll be disappointed. But if you're just looking to get the dogs out and walk in the shade of the enormous pines, this will work. The one-mile path around the park is paved and the small path that cuts across the water has some paving and some walking across grass. You are likely to encounter walkers, runners, bikes, strollers, dogs, and fishermen with their carts anywhere along these paths. Even the local fire station will come and run here sometimes. There is an over-abundance of ducks and geese that people feed even though they aren't supposed to, and they can be aggressive if you try to feed them. But you may also spot a heron, an egret, a pelican, or a flock of vultures in the trees on the islands. There are lots of shaded picnic tables throughout the park, with BBQ grills, one area with horseshoe pits, and three different playgrounds for kids, each geared toward a different age level. There are restrooms located throughout the park. They do stock the lake and they have fishing derbies each year. On holidays such as Mother's Day and Easter, people come early to reserve a picnicking site and it can get a little crowded, but the park opens at sunrise and closes at sunset. It's a go-to place for me and my three dogs.

Most people from the AV area are familiar with Apollo Park. I've been here countless times for fishing, feeding the aggressive geese, or just wandering around the man-made ponds. It used to have the Apollo 11 return capsule on display, but it was taken somewhere that more people could see it, I guess. After they removed the historical attraction, it kind of made the whole park seem that much more useless. It's a nice concept, but the park is just out of the way. And if you're going to drive all the way out there, you might as well go a bit farther to get to some much better (natural) options nearby for walking, hiking, or fishing.
