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.

Allen Pond is a decent park considering the size of the city it's in. If you want to take any serious walks or enjoy nature, this is not the place. But if you'd like to walk for under an hour, the path around the pond is enjoyable. There are lots of picnic tables to eat at, and at least two... More

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.
