Allen Pond Park
Allen Pond Park is the premier park in Bowie, Maryland. The park offers an array of activities including an amphitheatre, boat rentals, ball fienlds, basketball courts, playgrounds, picnic areas, pavilions, biking and walking trails and more. Accommodations include rest rooms and drinking fountains. The park sees many visitors throughout the year and is a favorite spot for the local community.
The park total 85-acres including a 10-acre pond for fishing and boat rentals. The City of Bowie had sought to make major improvements to the park and commissioned a master plan (see image to the left) to be created to make renovations to the park. The major goals were to enhance the park experience, improvement programming efficiencies while encouraging use and protecting the natural beauty and habitat. A major facet of this renovation was to improve access and use of the pond.
The City sought out the experience of Board Safe to provide ideas and create drawings for a dock layout and pond access around the boathouse. Board Safe manufactured numerous alumimun floating docks and railings for water access as well as several aluminum gangways. Local fisherman and families renting paddle boats love the new docks. The City of Bowie is proud of their "state-of-the-art" floating docks at Allen Pond Park.
