We had a wonderful day at this park. It is free, dog friendly and well maintained. The kids had a great time on the 2 playgrounds and fitness trail. We walked around the lake and saw many geese and ducks. This is a very nice park.

I wanted a change of pace from my normal walk routine so I gathered up the Pom's and headed to Allen Pond Park, what a great idea. We really enjoyed the walk way and enjoyed sitting in a bench after we had completed our walk just to watch the ducks and people fishing and paddle boats. We will come again!

One of the nicer facilities available in Bowie. If you have little kids, they'll enjoy playing here, and so will the grownups.

I have been to this park several times and I love it! The big pavilion at the top of the hill is a great place and has great views. The pond with the ducks is great. This is a great place.

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. Plus it is home to... More

Allen Pond is one of those few places on Earth which has everything going on. First it has a nice size and walking around the pond is at least a short hike, especially if you take your dog. Nestled throughout are picnic spots and it isn't unusual to see hundreds there during summer weekends. There is a good playground for... More
