PATRICK AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. -- Badged and retired military personnel are now eligible to utilize and purchase Kennedy Athletic, Recreation and Social (KARS) memberships.
These memberships are at the contractor and retirees existing fees of $15 and $10. This includes military, civilian and contractor personnel. In addition Patrick AFB retirees are included, provided they show proof of retirement.
KARS memberships can be purchased at KARS Park I, located on Hall Road, or at any NASA Ex-change retail stores inside Kennedy Space Center.
KARS Park has many usages for personal and official business purposes.
"We have a campground that includes 72 RV sites which include water and electric, and a primitive camping area," said Annette Dittmer, NASA Exchange manager.
"We have a boat ramp and several slips," she continued. "This is also a great little-known fishing spot."
