Allen County Parks are only partially tax supported.  Operating expenses must be met through user and program fees.  Admission is $2.00 per person age 7 and older.  Passes are available on an annual basis (good for one year from purchase date) starting at $15.00.  Activities at various parks include hiking, swimming, fishing, sledding, cross-coutry skiing (rentals avilable), playgrounds, picnic areas, playfields, and many nature-based programs for all ages.
