Allen Pond Park reviews
Love the community events, space and walking paths. Happy to see the city working on the duck poop on the trails. more »
We only experienced a small part of the park but I was pleased with my first time here. There were lots of cookouts going on in the various picnic areas. There was a diverse group of people in the park which I thought was great. The playground is decent size. It's big enough to give the kids room to roam but not so big that you feel like you have to follow your kids all around. Lots of shady areas for us grandparents to sit while the kids play. We plan to try the paddle boats on our next visit.
Nice place, it has playgrounds for kids. You can walk or run around the pond or sit on a bench and drink tea or coffee. It's a quiet place on weekdays not sure about the weekend though.
