Used this park for 25 years until it got to be everyone's dumping ground. When the trash cans are full , which is often, people just throw trash everywhere. this Park was in in its best when they held the British Car Day car show every June. People have no respect for what is provided for them.

This is my favorite park. No matter the weather, Allen Pond Park is beautiful and safe. There is a spirit of peace and tranquility at Allen Pond that really makes it special. Kudos to the city of Bowie and the caretakers that make Allen Pond Park the best park in Bowie.

At the Allen Pond Park in Bowie, MD there is a great wholesome family atmosphere! Great place to enjoy the outdoor within the Metro DC area.

Tucked away in a small neighborhood. Large pond. I think they still have boating in the summer. Grill space reserved with a permit. Maybe on a random weekday you can grill without, I'm not sure

Its a great park to do many things. This includes fishing, hiking, taking the paddle boats, even a skate park. In fact, I work at the boathouse. Please come to take the paddle boats! They are $10 per boat for 30 minutes for up to 4 people.
