Welcome to the Over the past year, we’ve expanded our trail system by more than 5%, renovated multiple aging parks, opened the redesigned and reconstructed Ford Pool, added a new play structure to the leisure pool at Don Rodenbaugh Natatorium and purchased park property near U.S. 75 for future development. We are also nearing completion of the Watters Trail bridge, Windridge Pocket Park and Spirit Community Park. To keep things fresh and make sure you have plenty to do this summer, our recreation facilities have created exciting new events, programs and classes. So, pay special NEW attention to things marked NEW throughout this Summer 2018 guide. From a creative series of events at the new Ford Pool (page 58) to engaging STEAM programming like the Outrageous Invention Convention at The Edge (page 28), this publication is your guide to everything recreation this summer!

Stephen Terrell, Mayor CITY OF ALLEN

Allen is #1 in Texas, #2 in the nation!

Whether you’re enjoying the music at Celebration Park during Market Street Allen USA Celebration, taking a walk on a section of our 65 miles of paved hiking and biking trails or trying yoga for the first time, it’s easy to see how much care is put into recreation programs and park and trail development. To keep up with all of the parks and recreation development, events and programs happening, keep an eye out in your mail and at recreation facilities for future editions of LIFE in Allen published three times a year in the Fall, Winter/Spring and Summer, and be sure to visit AllenParks.org for updates, news and stories.
