Heritage Park serves as a proud reminder of the colorful and successful history of England Air Force Base and the 23rd Fighter Wing. The famous "Flying Tigers" are yet another chapter in Central Louisiana's long history of support of our armed forces and our nation.

England Airpark traces it's beginning back to 1939, when it served as an emergency airstrip for Esler Field Airport. However, as the possibility of war in Europe increased, the Army Air Corps leased the facility naming it Alexandria Army Air Base. Until 1945, the facility was used as a B-17 bomber combat training school training an average of 45 bomber crews per month. After cessation of hostilities in Europe in 1945, the base was used to train B-29 crews for duty in the Pacific Theater. In 1946, as the war ended with Japan, the base was placed on a standby status and was turned back over to the city of Alexandria for use as a municipal airport.

With the outbreak of hostilities in Korea, the base was once again reactivated as Alexandria Air Base in 1950. That same year it was assigned to Tactical Air Command. In June, 1955, the base was officially named England Air Force Base in honor of Lt. Col. John B. England, who had been the commander of the 389th Bomber Squadron at the base. The facility was once again closed by the Department of Defense on December 15, 1992 and began its transition to civilian reuse as England Airpark and Community.
