JULY 26, 2022Allen Parks and Recreation will introduce new membership fees and added member benefits following the approval of a new fee and rate structure by Allen City Council.

Beginning Jan. 1, 2023, members who join or renew their memberships at Joe Farmer Recreation Center and Don Rodenbaugh Natatorium will enjoy convenient monthly billing, all-inclusive fitness classes and free season passes to Ford Pool.

Day passes, pavilion rentals and field rates will also be adjusted beginning Jan. 1. This is the first major update to recreation fees in more than 15 years.

The changes bring the department in line with current market rates and fee structures from both surrounding cities and comparable fitness facilities based on market research. The adjusted fees at recreation facilities, pavilions and fields are projected to generate an additional $600,000 in revenue by the Fiscal Year 2024.

Membership rates will not change for Allen Senior Recreation Center. The Edge Skate Park and Visitor Center will discontinue memberships beginning Jan. 1. Ford Pool’s season pass will remain available for purchase every summer.

Comprehensive details, including communication with current facility users, will begin this fall.
