Allen County Parks Mission…

“To establish and manage a permanent park system incorporating conservation, education, outdoor values, and nature preservation, and to provide recreational opportunities for the people of Allen County within this structure”

Allen County Parks provide:

  • Natural areas for recreation and nature study
  • Environmental education for thousands of Allen County school children
  • Natural and cultural history programs of all ages
  • Careful management of county park system resources to maintain and increase natural diversity and recreational opportunities
  • Rental facilities in a beautiful natural setting

Allen County Parks are owned by the people of Allen County and are operated by the volunteer Allen County Parks Board, appointed by area public and elected officials. Allen County Parks are funded by Allen County government and by user fees, facility rentals, program fees, grants, donations, and gifts. Staff salaries are provided by county tax revenues, with ALL operating and maintenance expenses supplied by user fees and other sources.
