Special Needs Adapted Programs

Throughout the year, the City of Allen Parks and Recreation Department offers a variety of programs for people with disabilities. The Allen Special Needs and Adapted Program (SNAP) is unique in that time is dedicated to skill development and social interaction during each class and event. SNAP’s goal is to offer everyone with special needs a fulfilling experience in a fun and supportive environment.
All of our facilities feature handicap-designated parking and are wheelchair accessible. Most have automatic front doors and several have extra-wide parking spaces for ramped accessible vehicles. Contact us today for more information.
