The Allouez Parks, Recreation, and Forestry Department’s mission is to provide parks, recreation, outdoor opportunities, and green space stewardship, for the enjoyment and wellbeing of all, in a fiscally responsible manner.
The Village of Allouez has 12 parks and a Community Center which encompass over 300 acres of parkland. The village parks include pavilions, playgrounds, tennis courts, soccer fields, youth baseball and softball fields, adult softball fields, Miracle League baseball, a football field, a kayak/canoe launch, natural areas, and multi-use trails for the enjoyment of the residents and visitors alike.

2016-2020 Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan
The Kiwanis Club of Allouez-Greater Green Bay donated $4532 to the Village of Allouez for playground equipment at Allouez Kiwanis Park. This donation allowed the Village to add a multi-person Unity Hoopla Swing to the newly installed playground this fall.
“This was a great addition to the new playground at Kiwanis Park that was not in our budget to purchase. The Village is very grateful and appreciative of the Kiwanis Club as well as other service groups and individuals that help make the community a better place to live,” stated Chris Clark, the Allouez Parks, Recreation, and Forestry Director. “We hope to continue to work with the Allouez-Greater Green Bay chapter of the Kiwanis Club in the upcoming years on future projects that will benefit the community.”
The new playground equipment at Kiwanis Park was a Parks Department capital project in 2016 to replace the 25 year old equipment that was beyond its lifespan and was showing a lot of wear.
Pets in Village Parks
The Village Board recently revised the Village Code of Ordinances to allow all domestic pets in village parks and trails while on leash at all times. Per the ordinance, pets are still not allowed in park buildings, in playgrounds, on sport fields, or in picnic areas. We would like to also remind all pet owners and custodians to clean up and properly dispose of all pet waste immediately from all park grounds and trails.

Smoke Free Parks
The Village Board recently approved a village ordinance prohibiting smoking and electronic smoking devices in all village parks and trails. The purpose for the creation of this ordinance is to protect the health, welfare, and safety of the public and reduce littering upon public grounds.

Disc Golf Course Expansion
A group of disc golf enthusiasts are raising funds to expand the Dier Straits Disc Golf Course at Wiese Park. This group will raise all of the funds needed and perform the work to expand the course from nine holes to eighteen. In addition, they are proposing raising additional funding for the planting of new trees throughout the course and the park.
Several of the new holes would be narrow mowed fairways in the tall grass area on the east side of Wiese Park while others will be on the west side of the woods near the Longview retention pond. None of the disc holes crosses any trails. Please visit the Dier Straits Disc Golf Facebook page for more information and progress on the project https://www.facebook.com/Dier-Straits-Disc-Golf-Course-458389437565856/
