A L L E N PA R K S .O R G


Welcome to the

.

Thanks for checking out the 2017 Summer Guide to Allen Parks and Recreation! During the twenty years I’ve served as your mayor, I’ve been honored to help encourage the growth of our City’s parks, trails and recreation centers. For many folks, these amenities are part of daily routines: dropping off a teen for softball Stephen Terrell, Mayor CITY OF ALLEN practice at Allen Station Park, meeting friends for a fitness class at Joe Farmer Recreation Center, taking the dog on a walk along Cottonwood Creek Trail, or treating the grandkids to a swim at our beautifully-renovated Ford Pool. These spaces make our city stronger, smarter and more sociable. I think that’s why residents keep choosing to expand them! Thanks to $27 million in voter-approved funding, we’re looking forward to adding a new recreation center, more athletic fields, a community garden and more in the years to come. Not only do we take pride in our excellent facilities, we’re also grateful for the dedicated people who care for them. Our Allen Parks & Recreation Staff earned national attention last year by receiving a Gold Medal Award for Excellence in Parks and Recreation Management. This prestigious annual prize is awarded to just six park systems in the entire country. Not only did Allen earn the top prize in 2016, it has been a finalist in its category for four years in a row.

Letter from the Mayor

Each year I fill my summer schedule with enriching activities and cherished traditions made possible by Allen Parks and Recreation. And thanks to all the programs listed in the pages ahead, you can too. I hope you’ll join me in enjoying LIFE in Allen this summer!

Fees REGISTRATION FEES All program fees are set according to the cost of the instructor, supplies and minimum class enrollment. Some programs may require additional fees or supplies and may be offered at member and non-member rates. In most cases, programs will not be held on holidays recognized by the City of Allen. All fees collected support and finance these programs.

Wait Lists WAITING LISTS Is your class full? If so, we can place you on a waiting list. We will notify you if a space becomes available or a new class is formed. Payment is not required until you are registered for an open class position.

Policies TRANSFER POLICY Participants may transfer to another available class before it begins without charge but only if the enrollment for the class transferred from will not drop below the minimum. ASSUMPTION OF RISK By registering for a class there is an assumption of risk by the participant. The Allen Parks & Recreation Department is dedicated to providing safe facilities and equipment for all participants, as well as qualified staff and instructors. In the event of a serious accident or illness, it is City policy to contact: • The Allen Fire Department Emergency Services to perform First Aid and when necessary, recommend transport to a hospital. • Each parent or legal guardian as soon as the situation allows. SIBLING POLICY Due to the structure of child/parent classes, only children who are of the appropriate age for the class will be permitted to register and attend the program. No younger or older siblings will be allowed in the classroom to sit and watch or be left unattended in the lobby.

PARENT POLICY Please refrain from entering the teaching area during class to eliminate interruptions between the instructor and participants. There will be special days to view your child’s progress. PHOTO POLICY Staff or hired photographers may take photos of class participants. The photos may be used for City of Allen promotional purposes in the Activity Guide, brochures, flyers, news releases or the website.
