Allen, TX is located NE of Dallas and has the largest public skatepark in the state at 37,915 sq.ft. The park was designed by the Site Design Group and built by Eric Dawkins.

The park features a large street area connected to a bowl. Plus two other bowls. One is a flow bowl with a spine, hips and a mild oververt pocket ranging in 5-8ft in depth. The other bowl is a tight clover bowl ranging in 6-9 1/2ft in depth. On top of that, the park has a really smooth finish.

The park allows boards, blades and bikes, so it does get very crowded. The park is also unsupervised, free of charge, lit and open everyday.
