It is a good local park. Good for adults and children. The pond is good size and has paddle boats in the summer. The walking trail is fine though fairly short. There is a hill climb which makes up for the short trail.

Very spacious area to hike or just walk by the lake. There are ducks for feeding and a pavilion. This place is always packed though July 4th. Almost impossible to get in.

The resident ducks and geese welcome boaters in summer, the ball fields host soccer and baseball, the stage features local performers as well as military bands. Skateboarders have their own facility, as do ice skaters. The kids love the playground and the near mile path around the pond attracts strollers, walkers, pets, bikes and runners.

Nestled throughout are picnic spots and it isn't unusual to see hundreds there during summer weekends. There is a good playground for... More

Allen's Pond is a nice park with a brand new playground. In season, you can rent a paddleboat. There is also a nice skateboard park a little ways up from the playground. If you plan ahead you can rent a picnic site. Some have multiple grills. You can sign up for the site at Bowie City Hall. We had my... More

I spent the day with my family. The park is equipped with walking trail, paddle boats, and several play grounds to accommodate the babies to school aged kids. It's a family friendly park, my family and I love spending a day out here.
