ALLEN COUNTY PARKS WISHES ALL OF YOU A VERY HAPPY THANKSGIVING!! To allow our employees to enjoy the holiday with their families the Nature Centers at both Fox Island and Metea County Parks will be closed for the day. Since some of you may want to come out and walk off your BIG dinner we will however have the gates open at both parks. Keep in mind though that with the Nature Centers closed, this also means that the RESTROOMS WILL BE CLOSED AS WELL!!
