A property once home to one of Allen’s last working farms will now be fully owned and cared for by Allen Parks and Recreation.

A 16-acre portion of the Molsen Farm property was purchased in 2016 by Allen Independent School District. Recently, Allen ISD determined the land was not necessary to meet future needs. The Allen ISD Board of Trustees approved the land sale on July 25; Allen City Council approved the purchase during its July 26 meeting.

Allen Parks and Recreation is already developing a master plan for more than 52 acres of the Molsen Farm property already owned by the City of Allen. The property has an existing trail as well as a new trailhead currently in design. Incorporation of the newly acquired land will be considered during finalization of the master plan.

The purchase cost, not to exceed $4 million, will be funded by a combination of 2016 bond election funds and various grants.
