HAMPTON, Va. — Air Power Park in Hampton has been undergoing construction and changes in a revitalization project for nearly the past year, and now it will be completely closed for a month for the last phase.
The 15-acre park features several vintage aircraft and experimental space launch vehicles from the 1950s and 1960s. The indoor museum at the center of the park includes themed rooms with more than 325 models of aircraft, spacecraft and nautical vessels representing all the U.S. branches of service and some other nations, according to the museum.
The building and parking lot were closed starting on Friday at 5:00 p.m.
The entrance to Air Power Park to the WaterWalk will be closed according to a post from Hampton's website, but people can still visit from other points on the trail.
"During this final construction, the grading will be completed and turf installed... the waterfront features (dock, pier, bulkhead cap, safety rail installation) will also be completed. This planned brief interruption of access is necessary for the safe, speedy completion of the project."
