WCSX City of the Week

Congratulations to Allen Park,

You’re the WCSX City of the Week

Allen Park Factoids:

  • It was named after Lewis Allen, pioneer lumberman and land owner who owned a large area of what would become the villages of Allen Park and Melvindale.
  • Allen Park is home to the Uniroyal Giant Tire, the largest non-production tire scale model ever built, and one of the world’s largest roadside attractions, standing 80 feet tall and weighing 12 tons.  Originally a Ferris Wheel at the 1964 New York World’s Fair, the structure was moved to Allen Park in 1966.
  • Ford Motor Company is an integral part of the community. Many of the company’s offices and facilities lie within the city limits.
  • Since 2002, Allen Park is the practice home of the Detroit Lions football team and is also the site of the team’s headquarters.
