Time to make a play date! Three Allen parks will debut upgraded play structures by the end of 2019.
The new-and-improved playgrounds will be installed at Bethany Ridge Park, Dayspring Nature Preserve and Glendover Park. In addition to standard swings, slides and monkey bars, each will have unique features found at no other Allen park.
The original playgrounds were first installed 18 years ago.
The $522,930 project will be partly funded by a $151,815 matching grant awarded by the GameTime 2019 Texas Recreation and Parks Society (TRAPS) Initiative. Allen City Council voted to move forward with the project during the July 9 meeting.
