Allen Pond is a good park to do some walking, biking, jogging, or just lazing around. The first time I came here was to have a reunion with batchmates we've known for eight years. The other time, I bike around with my family and some friends. This last time, I was with three other friends with whom I go on... More

If you need a fun and relaxing activity on Sunday evenings, try the Md. Parks and Recreation Summer Concerts. They usually take place 7-8pm. on Sundays from June-August. Check out the line-up for your favorite type of music. Bring a blanket/chair and snacks and enjoy!

This is the biggest park in Bowie that I am aware of and is a really nice park for all ages. Between the play areas, fields, and the walking paths around the pond, it makes for a relaxing day.

My family and I have taken advantage of this lovely park for twenty year. Picnic, stroll, paddle-boats, playgrounds for varios ages and abilities. Larger groups rent a picnic pavilion or a couple of reserved picnic tables. Bring your bikes and trikes. The park is kept clean and over our twenty years of visiting never a bad experience. There are concerts,... More

Allen Pond Park is good for a weekend picnic or for scheduled events (check the City website for everything that goes on there, from weekend events to free concerts). If you are a Bowie resident, you can rent one of the pavilions for a family or group get-together.

My stepson loves the skate park, when it is not busy I let him take his bike there and work on his tricks (7 years old.) The pond is a great place to walk around for a nice workout. There is an event stage that will sometimes host events. There are a few different places for the kids to play... More

This park is on the small side but very pretty with a small pond you can walk around. The park has playground equipment, picnic options, and you can rent a paddle boat during certain hours to enjoy on the pond. It's a nice place to stop if you are in the area but too small to make an extra trip... More
