  1. Allen Event Center


    The city’s 7,000+ seat arena, which is managed by the Parks and Recreation Department, opened in 2009 and averages 300,000 visitors annually, offering a wide array of exciting entertainment for the whole family. The arena is home to three professional sports franchises, international events, high-profile concerts, family shows and tradeshows, enhancing quality of life for Allen residents and contributing an estimated $12M annual economic impact.
  1. Golf Course

    The Courses at Watters Creek

    Designed to decrease the intimidation new golfers face, an $8M renovation transformed the conventional golf course into a practice and learning venue (opened 2013). While the 18-hole course still appeals to traditional golfers, the lighted driving range, family-friendly six-hole course, fun, quick nine-hole course and special programming also attract women, juniors, families and golfers on a tight schedule.
