Formed in 2002, the Allen Parks Foundation is a charitable organization whose primary purpose is to further enhance Allen’s great park system and recreation facilities, expand development of parks and recreational programming, and accept land bequests and other donations by partnering with the City of Allen, other governmental partners, local organizations and groups. The Allen Parks Foundation supports and improves the recreational opportunities in the Park system which enhances the community and the citizens’ quality of life.

In accordance with our mission, the Allen Parks Foundation has successfully secured charitable contributions from various corporations and other entities for use in enhancing the parks and recreation system. We are currently raising funds to assist with the development of a trail marking and “wayfinding” system for Allen’s trails. These systems include a pavement marking system that provides distance markers and trail nomenclature for each trail. In addition, a trail wayfinding system is being installed that will provide trail names, locations, and directions for trail users.

Other initiatives include “kidMania”, the largest handicap-accessible playground in the State of Texas located in Celebration Park; a successful Park Ambassador program that helps keep City trails and parks safe and in good condition for the community; and a “Tool Trailer” which can be used by any local organization for the enhancement of public spaces.

Party on the Path!

We bet that YOU enjoy the trails in Allen as much as the Allen Parks Foundation!

We’re hosting our annual fundraiser out on the trails this year! Please join us on Watters Trail for a very unique and relaxing experience, taking in the trails, the scenery, the environment, the chirping birds and the….wait for it….craft brews!?!

The Allen Parks Foundation will be hosting a special “Party on the Path” at 6 p.m. on Saturday, September 22 on the “Watters Trail” between Bethany Drive and the Yeager Office Suites. Come out, enjoy one of Allen’s awesome trails, and sample some craft brews from local breweries including Franconia and Tupp’s at this one-of-a-kind event. Our friends at Yeager Properties are excited to host you and the Allen Parks Foundation’s first craft brew trail!

We’ll have “sampling” stations on the trail along with light appetizers, including entertainment at the newly installed pedestrian bridge. The event will then proceed inside the new Yeager Office Suites for more brew sampling, food stations, entertainment, auctions and games so that everyone will have a great time supporting the Allen Parks Foundation.  Not a beer drinker?  Don’t worry … we will have wine and other non-alcoholic beverages available inside as well.

The “Party on the Path” parking and entrance will be at the Yeager Office Suites (550 S. Watters Road) for entry to the craft brew trail. (See map below.) Please note the outside craft brew trail will close at 7:30 p.m.

Ticket prices are $60 individual ($50 two or more) for the “Party on the Path.” You say you are a “Park Ambassador”? Great! We love our Park Ambassadors! Park Ambassadors can attend the event for specially priced tickets at $50 each. And if you don’t have time to spend the entire evening with us but still want to sample the craft brews on the trail, $30 will get you on the trail!

Attendees of previous years’ fundraisers will already be familiar with the fun and unique atmosphere the Parks Foundation brings to its fundraising events. The “Party on the Path” is no different – unique as always!

*Please note that this event is for adults age 21 and over.*
