Allen Park has some amazing landmarks and attractions. This week, we celebrate Allen Park, City of the Week with WCSX!
The home of the Lions HQ and practice fields is impressive in and of itself. Gensler.com describes the facility as having a 95,000-square-foot indoor practice field, with state-of-the-art training and treatment facilities. The Lions also throw a great party for the fans at the beginning of each season.
Allen Park is home to the Uniroyal Giant Tire which has a fascinating history. The tire has resided on the side of I-94 for nearly 60 years. It was originally a Ferris wheel at the 1964 World Fair! The wheel was moved in 188 pieces from New York to Michigan and took 4 months to be constructed. Scroll down for more facts on the Uniroyal Giant Tire and more.
Another Allen Park landmark came about thanks to Big Jim’s House and the Allen Park community: Bob Seger Boulevard! Before Pine Knob changed its address to Bob Seger Drive, Allen Park was home to Bob Seger Boulevard!
