Soon after the Seabees were formed at the end of World War II, the United States. Navy established a base for Naval Construction Battalions returning from overseas to replace and rebuild from the West Coast. Founded on November 26, 1942, Camp Parks was named in honor of Rear Admiral Charles W. Parks, Civil Engineer Corps (CEC), the Bureau of Yards and Docks ‘ leader of World War I. Camp Shoemaker and the U.S. are adjacent to Camp Parks in the east. Shoemaker Naval Hospital, built during the war as well. The three side-by-side bases of the Navy are renamed “Fleet Town.”

Camp Parks was able to assemble more than 20,000 people and hundreds of officers on its large paved parade ground in 1945. It was home to Seabee battalions returning after a year or more of construction service from the Pacific Theater of Operations. For medical treatment, military preparation and reorganization, they came to Camp Parks. The base held at one point up to 20 battalions. Most of the battalions are training for a second Pacific tour. Most Seabees have been hospitalized and their discharge has been granted to those no longer fit for service. Education was offered to workers after their initial leaves and battalions were returned to combat power.

The U.S. Navy Secretary disestablished the three facilities in 1946 at the end of World War II, and the Navy leased the property to Alameda County for use as Santa Rita Jail from 1946 to 1951. Subsequently, the Quonset huts sea and two-story wooden barracks are demolished. Unused remained Camp Parks until the U.S. In 1951, during the Korean War, Air Force developed it as a basic training center and renamed the Parks Air Force Base base. The base was completely rebuilt by the Air Force. Originally, base personnel were housed in temporary buildings and eat from a field mess. The first group of airmen arrived in the summer of 1951 at Camp Parks, and in March 1952 mass training began. Parks Air Force Base is notable without a working runway on site as one of the few air force bases.
