When it comes to the great outdoors, Allen has ample room for exploring. Wander along the unpaved trails at Dayspring Nature Preserve or The Trail at the Woods, cast a line at Bethany Lakes Park, or pack a picnic and head for Connemara Meadow Nature Preserve. Little ones along for the ride? Nurture their sense of adventure at one of the playgrounds tucked along our expansive trail system; Spirit Park, Heritage Park and Waterford Park are local favorites.
