Winter/Spring 2020 CITY OF ALLEN PA R KS & R E C R E AT I O N ACTIVITY GUIDE

DECEMBER 31 - APRIL 27 R EG I ST R AT I O N Resident: December 9 Non-Resident: December 11


Welcome to the

.

For nearly thirty years, I’ve had the honor of helping to shape Allen’s Parks and Recreation system. When I joined Allen City Council in 1991, Allen had only a handful of small, neighborhood parks, and our trail system was virtually non-existent. Our only recreation centers were the simple, L-shaped Ford Pool and tiny senior center, which met in the old Stephen Terrell, Mayor Blue House in downtown Allen. CITY OF ALLEN Today, Allen boasts 67 parks and facilities encompassing nearly 1,200 acres of park land. If placed end-to-end, you could get from Allen to Durant, Oklahoma on the City’s 68 miles of hike and bike trails. We now offer seven recreation centers (including a fully renovated Ford Pool and bustling Allen Senior Recreation Center), with another in the works on Exchange Parkway, south of Ridgeview Drive. Our calendar features a full roster of events large and small, from the Eggcellent Family Adventure on April 4 (see page 31) to Outdoor Adventure Day on March 28 (see page 19) to the alwaysanticipated Market Street Allen USA Celebration in June. As I approach my final months in office, I don’t want to miss this opportunity to say “Thank You” to our determined community—along with the devoted team of elected officials, board appointees, City staff and volunteers—who dreamed, planned, built, maintain and enjoy these beloved community amenities. We’ve been named one of the best parks systems in the nation and— in my opinion—it’s because we have the best people in the nation. I’m so grateful for your support as we’ve made life in Allen even better.

Letter from the Mayor
