WCSX City of the Week

Congratulations to Allen Park,

You’re the WCSX City of the Week

Allen Park Factoids:

  • Allen Park 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.  Originally a Ferris Wheel at the 1964 New York World’s Fair, it was moved to Allen Park in 1966.

  • Thunderbowl Lanes in Allen Park has hosted many Professional Bowlers Association’s tournaments beginning in 2009 when Thunderbowl hosted the inaugural PBA World Series of Bowling and most recently, the tenth anniversary of the event.
