Welcome to the

.

When I was a kid, some of my favorite summer memories involved swimming and summer camp. As soon as school let out, I jumped at the chance to spend all day outdoors, learning new skills and meeting new friends. Times may have changed since I was growing up. But there’s Stephen Terrell, Mayor still something special about CITY OF ALLEN summer—especially when you spend it with Allen Parks and Recreation. In this guide you’ll discover page after page of unique activities to make this season unforgettable. Kids can enjoy camps focused on classic skills like fishing and cooking, or more tech-savvy subjects like video game design and digital photography. And for those sizzling afternoons, you’ll find a fun and affordable spot to cool off and have a splash at the beautifullyupdated Ford Pool. Of course, no summer would feel complete without my favorite tradition for kids and grown-ups alike, Market Street Allen USA Celebration at 4:00PM on Saturday, June 29 at Celebration Park. This citywide party brings together the best parts of every good summer bash: delicious food, great music and a stunning fireworks display. It’s a great way to celebrate the thing I like most about summer: the chance to spend more time with the people we love.
