Allen Park

Allen Park is a home away from home to many residents of New Hazelton.  The park features a gazebo, scenic bridge, public washrooms, informational boards, a playground, and was the site of a 1913 gunfight which saw locals duel it out with seven bank robbers. Historical significance aside, Allen Park is the place to be on a nice day and is also the host to both of New Hazelton's annual events.

If you are interested in hosting an event at Allen Park please contact the District of New Hazelton at 250-842-6571. The District would like to remind groups using the park for events to clean up after themselves and to remove any garbage related to their event from the park.
