Indian Battle Park Canada, Lethbridge

Indian Battle Park

Indian Battle Park is a park located in the Oldman River valley urban park system of Lethbridge, Alberta. The 150-acre park was developed in 1960 and commemorates the Battle of the Belly River held in the area on 24 October 1870 between the Blackfoot and the Cree. A formal peace treaty between the two nations was reached in 1871.

In 2005, a city council bid to rename the park Valley Of Peace (to remove negative references to First Nations) was rejected.

The park is home to Fort Whoop-Up, Helen Schuler Coulee Centre and the High Level Bridge.
