Ken Adam Park is a 42 acre park located in northern Lompoc and lies off of Highway 1 adjacent to the Lompoc campus of Allan Hancock College. This beautiful park lies at the heart of the Lompoc Valley between Vandenberg Village, Mission Hills, and the City of Lompoc. This park, which re-opened to the public in 2000, is going through a renovation process and features a large group picnic area, a children's playground, individual picnic areas, horseshoes, volleyball, and restroom facilities. It is a perfect setting for a family or company picnic! Click here for information about renting this facility.

Included in the park property is the magnificent three-poled flag monument which sits on a bluff overlooking Lompoc. The flag monument was developed as a project of the former Western Spaceport Museum project.

The total acreage of the City owned property (which includes Ken Adam Park) is 118.8 acres. A total of 76.8 acres remains undeveloped open space. A goal of the Parks & Recreation Department is to develop a comprehensive master plan for the entire 118.8 acre property. The park is named after Ken Adam, the longtime owner and publisher of the Lompoc Record newspaper.

A portion of the current Ken Adam Park was part of the original Ken Adam Park which served as a Santa Barbara County park from 1968 until 1986. In 1986, the County relinquished administration of the park to the Western Spaceport Museum. This non-profit group worked to establish a permanent museum but the idea never came to full fruition. Western Spaceport officials re-named Ken Adam Park to "Spaceport Park". Spaceport Park was open to the public on a much more limited basis from 1986 until 1998.

Concurrently, as construction of the Allan Hancock College campus began, the proposed museum project began to lose momentum. Access to Spaceport Park was slowly eliminated over a one to three year period (1996-98). In April 1998, through the assistance of our local legislators, approximately 118.8 acres was transferred from the Western Spaceport Museum to the City of Lompoc to be used for "parks or educational purposes".
