Allison Parks (October 18, 1941[2][1] – June 21, 2010), born Gloria Waldron, was an American model and actress. She was chosen as Playboy magazine's Playmate of the Month in October 1965, and Playmate of the Year for 1966, with her as the cover model and a pictorial in the May issue. She also appeared in the Playboy Mansion Pictorial in the January 1966 issue of Playboy (starting on page 105) along with Ashlyn Martin. Her original pictorial was photographed by William Figge.[2]

"Allison Parks" was a pseudonym that she used when she modeled for Playboy, but she told The Playmate Book that she liked it so much, she kept using it all the time. She already was a mother at the time of her centerfold, and her kids were featured in a photo in her layout, but were identified as being "swimming school" students.

After her Playmate work, Parks went on to a long career as a model and actress, mostly in TV commercials.


She died of heart failure on June 21, 2010, on the beach in Hawaii at her favorite vacation spot.[1]
