HONOR OUR PAST, INSPIRE FUTURE GENERATIONS

History's first and only crewed surface transportation system designed to operate on the Moon was designed, tested and built by The Boeing Company for NASA in Kent, Washington! Commonly known as the Lunar Rover or Moon Buggy, the four-wheeled vehicles were last used during Apollo missions 15, 16 and 17 between 1971-72. Three of the Kent-built Lunar Rovers remain on the Moon today and were designated as historic landmarks in July 2019! 

To honor and celebrate our region's role in the historic Apollo Space Program , we're creating a space-themed park in downtown Kent centered around an interactive replica of a Lunar Roving Vehicle.

Donate today to help fund this project. We hope this installation inspires future generations to pursue the many out-of-this world opportunities still available to them today!
