It was opened in 1969, the same year as the first manned mission to the Moon by the Apollo programme, hence its name.

The Apollo Pavilion sits in a small public park in the middle of a housing estate. Paths around the structure can be uneven. The Community Centre is within walking distance and has toilets.
