Welcome to Allen Park. This 11-acre neighborhood park located at 4830 9th Street was constructed in 1987. It bears the namesake of Grace Norcross Allen, a local poet and historian. Mrs. Allen frequently wrote articles for the Greeley Tribune from 1945-1948. Many of her articles related the historical characters and events in and around the Weld County area. She particularly enjoyed writing about children. Allen Park provides a large playground structure for your children with a separate swing area. The site provides a fishing lake which is stocked periodically by the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Division. Enjoy your stay at Allen Park.
