This past weekend I had family visiting and we went to listen to the free summer concert series in Allen Pond. It happened to be a Motown session. We really enjoyed ourselves.

Lots to do at this park. Pond to fish in, or rent a paddleboat and explore. Good walking/running/biking trails around pond. Good playgrounds for the kids. Also a skatepark. And several ball fields (softball, soccer, lacrosse).
