It offers more than 34 classes a week and houses sports courts, a running track, weight room, fitness rooms and a parent workout room where children are welcome, as well as a dining facility for healthy snacks before or after your workout.
The Base Pool, the Bowling Center and Chapel
All three facilities have been on the base since the beginning. They have been renovated and upgraded, but the structure and purpose remain the same - spiritual and recreational relief. The Chapel sponsors a quarterly Deployed Family Dinner. The meal is either provided by a local restaurant or funded by a local business - it's a great example of one of our Community partnership programs.
Each aircraft on display in Heritage Park has been an airframe supported throughout the 60-year history here at LRAFB. The base has been under a few different major commands - Strategic Air Command, Military Airlift Command, Air Combat Command, Air Education and Training Command and now back to Air Mobility Command. The missions have also varied from a bombardment wing, a reconnaissance mission, the missile wing and a rescue mission and airlift.
