Great public space to walk, rest, picnic, or play field sports. And there is an indoor ice arena offering lessons and free-skating!

Allen Pond Park includes an indoor ice rink, seasonal boat rentals, a nice playground, several soccer and softball fields and a bandshell where the city has weekly free concerts in the summer. Nice walk around the (small lake)Pond. Several city events held here including Bowiefest in June.

Took the kids ice skating for the first time and they loved it. It was cheap and not to crowded. Then went to the park next door and the kids had a blast. Very well up kept and very nice play ground.

I really enjoy Allen Pond Park located in Bowie Maryland. I have been there to take my family on picnics and I have also attended concerts there. Each time I am pleasantly surprised with the space.

Great family place with on-site in-door restrooms, soccer fields, picnic tables, band stand, pond, duck-feeding opportunity, and on-site indoor ice skating rink. Look no further!

Lovely park! The neighborhood is beautiful & quiet! They have paddle boat for rent also. A little pricey, but fun!

Nice park to visit. Comes with a duck filled pond. We bring a bag of bread to feed them. The children love it. Nice playground areas with plenty of field space, courts, and ice skating rink.

nice park and I enjoy the exercise equipment. They also have a nice playground for the children. The park is also very clean. Take some old bread crumbs or cereal to feed the ducks!

A walk from my home in Heather Hills to Allen Pond and back is 4.2 miles. Early morning is really a good time to enjoy the scenery, quietness and the pond. That is the only time I use the park.
