General Information
Description of ServiceApollo Park was donated to the county in 1969 by P. H. Gladfelter and named in honor of the 1969 Apollo moon landing. Apollo Park was originally two parcels of mostly forested and very wild river hill country joined together to create this 340 acre park located east of New Bridgeville in southeast York County. The park is a fine example of beautiful Susquehanna River hills habitat: rhododendron, mountain laurel-covered valleys that cut into sharp, heavily-forested slopes falling down to the river. In addition, several clear streams (Wilson Run and Boyd Run) cut through the valleys on their way to the Susquehanna River.
