Corey Allen

Franklin Park Coalition

Corey J. Allen is a lifelong Mattapan resident and is the current Executive Director of the Franklin Park Coalition. Corey’s ties to Franklin Park date back to his father playing Little League bashful in the park, and his grandparents viewing Duke Ellington, a performance hosted by the original Elma Lewis Playhouse in the Park concert series. Corey’s first adventures on his bicycle as a young child were in Franklin Park, and his high school football days took place in the George Robert White Schoolboy Stadium, located in the Playstead section of Franklin Park. Prior to serving as Executive Director of the Franklin Park Coalition, Corey had a successful career as a high school English teacher, dean of students, and community liaison within Boston Public Schools.
