My family and I have taken advantage of this lovely park for twenty year. Picnic, stroll, paddle-boats, playgrounds for varios ages and abilities.

There are concerts,... More

Allen Pond Park is good for a weekend picnic or for scheduled events (check the City website for everything that goes on there, from weekend events to free concerts). If you are a Bowie resident, you can rent one of the pavilions for a family or group get-together.

Cute park, never overcrowded. You have the option to go to the different structures or to take a walk around the pond. Will definitely return.

Nice walk area around the pond; children's play area is adequate; outdoor concerts could use more variety; basketball courts; skate park; baseball diamond; gazebo's. Overall, nice place to spend the day.
