A hand painted sign leaned against a chain link fence next to a converted swimming pool. That sign read, "Neptune's Lunar Lander."

A swimming pool had been converted into a children's play area. The bottom was covered in wood chips. A concrete seal named Flip was in the center with a broken flipper. An alien had been painted on a slide at the far end.

A ladder led down into the play area, as did a slide. Between the two was a pile of orange trash bags.

Another sign read, "Pixie Woods Lunar Landing." That sign had cutouts so that children could become part of the scene.

A sign indicated what had been:

Flip The Seal Pool
Built in 1955 - $350
Funded by Zimmerman family,
Stockton Lions Club
and Stockton Building Materials
Renovated early 1970's

Sadly, no sign indicated when it had been decommissioned.
