Celebration Rules & Hours
kidMania Play & Sprayground Rules
kidMania PlaygroundAllen Parks and Recreation is excited to host a unique sprayground area next to the kidMania handicap accessible playground. The playground and sprayground are for use by children ages 2 to 12 years old. The Parks and Recreation Board has adopted the following rules for use of the playground and sprayground facilities:
  • Children wearing diapers must wear a "swim diaper" if using the sprayground
  • For your safety, please do not climb on spray apparatus, railings or barriers
  • No pets allowed on sprayground or playground
  • No skateboards, bicycles or roller skates are allowed on playground or sprayground
  • Only rubber soled shoes allowed on sprayground rubber deck
  • Play at your own risk
Sprayground Hours of Operation
The sprayground at Celebration Park (701 Angel Parkway) is open for the 2014 season and operates from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. except Wednesdays. The sprayground is closed for weekly maintenance every Wednesday.

Water Conservation Efforts for Sprayground Operation
The City of Allen's conservation initiatives involves reducing the use of potable water at the sprayground. In order to reduce consumption, the sprayground’s pumping system has been retrofitted to include a recirculating system that will allow the sprayground to operate on recirculated water instead of requiring a continuous supply of potable water.

If you have any questions about other park facilities, please call 214.509.4700. 

Migratory Bird Settlement - Notice Regarding Celebration Park 
Update April 23, 2014: Allen Parks and Recreation Department are employing preventive measures including the use of visual deterrents and noisemaking devices to discourage migratory bird settlement at Celebration Park in order to protect the City's largest community park for recreational use this summer. (Listen to sample of noisemakers.) Loud noisemaking deterrents will be in use by Parks and Recreation Staff until the threat of nesting has passed.

Last year the five acre wooded section of the park adjacent to Angel Parkway was closed for over six months as a large population of Cattle Egrets nested. For more information, visit the Migratory Bird Information page.

For public safety purposes, the forested area may be fenced and closed to the public until the potential Egret breeding season has passed.
