Indian Battle Park is a park located in the Oldman River valley urban park system of Lethbridge, Alberta. The 150-acre (0.61 km2) 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.
