The wide open expanses of the surrounding area makes the Marathon Sky Park perfect for the experienced or novice Rocketeer!

We all remember the Estes model Rockets we grew up with as kids. Estes Rockets are still very popular to this day. However, advances in technology have improved the level of sophistication never before recognized in the field of 'Model' Rocketry. Young people are being mentored by various organizations dedicated to applying the knowledge they've gained in mathematics, physics or aerodynamics to construct rockets capable of carrying out various experiments during their flight to very impressive altitudes in excess of 100,000 feet.
