Welcome to the

.

When people tell me what they love about our city, they always seem to mention Allen's great community spirit and hometown feel. It's something Allen City Council has deliberately protected and nurtured during an exceptional period of growth. We've found one of the best ways to foster that spirit is by creating opportunities and spaces for people to play together. Stephen Terrell, Mayor That's the vision behind Allen's newest CITY OF ALLEN community gathering space, the 75-acre Spirit Park. Located off Ridgeview and Bray Central Drive, it offers fresh opportunities to connect with your neighbors in a beautiful, natural setting. Recruit some friends to join our expanded adult softball leagues and enjoy a lighted complex with artificial turf to help prevent rain-outs. Plan a playdate at Allen is #1 in Texas, The Hideout, the park's one-of-a-kind #2 in the nation! playground designed to mimic a kidconstructed fort. Or take a stroll with your spouse through the park's looped pedestrian and nature trails, enjoying colorful public art and a butterfly-attracting pollinator garden along the way.

With connections to our citywide trail network, Spirit Park is a natural fit for the growing community of families, young professionals and seniors who call Allen home. No matter your age, we hope you'll be inspired by the spirit of play when you visit. Watch for grand opening festivities coming this fall!
