Allen Park Reviews
Review Allen Park
Allen Park is a quiet gem within the Downriver Area. It's residents are friendly and welcoming and it's a safe place to live. When you're in Allen Park, you're minutes from everything from trendy shops, bars and restaurants downtown to the shopping mecca of "The Hill" on the north end of the city. Allen Park's schools have always had a reputation for excellence and as mentioned, Allen Park is safe...we like it that way and our men an women in blue keep it that way. Don't believe it? Just enter the city via the Southfield Fwy over 55 MPH and find out for yourself. A great time to check out the city is during the yearly festival Downtown.
It's pretty nice. My street is especially aesthetic in the fall because we have a lot of trees that change color. Unfortunately, like so many places in Michigan, we have a lot of potholes in the area. Also, on M39 in Allen Park, the police seem to act like giving tickets on its freeway is their only source of income. The thing is, they seem to pull people over that go 2mph over the speed limit when they should really focus on the people who constantly switch lanes often without even indicating.
Allen Park is a small town, but its full of fun. It has clean streets and lots of parks. New restaurants have been popping up recently including Griffs Pub and Luke & Lulu's, both are amazingly delicious. The community center has a nice little fitness center and hosts lots of classes and community events. I've lived in several different communities over the years but Allen Park is by far the safest and friendliest.
