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.

An Evening that ‘Saurs!

The Allen Parks Foundation had an awesome inaugural Annual Fundraiser last September!  Hosted by The Dinosaur Company – “An Evening that ‘Saurs!” was a huge success!  We are so thankful for those that attended and supported this event.  Not only did everyone have a very unique and fun time at The Dinosaur Company, supporting the Allen Parks Foundation made it even better!  We had a great time “mingling” with the Dinosaurs, partaking of fantastic food and drink, listening to some great live music, and more.  Food by Two Rows, drinks by Nine Band Brewery and Zin Zen Wine Bistro, and live jazz music by Mocha Blue Jazz Trio kept the evening exciting.  Thanks again for all of those who contributed, attended and volunteered for the event.

Thanks to our awesome sponsors!
