Slocan Park is an unincorporated settlement in the Slocan Valley area of the West Kootenay region of the Interior of British Columbia, Canada. Largely an agricultural and residential community of about 120 households, Slocan Park is the site of the co-operative grocery and gas outlet for the Slocan Valley, and other commercial services included a branch of the local credit union.

Once a station on the rail route to the busy "Silvery Slocan" mines, Slocan Park was also one of many Doukhobour communities founded throughout the West Kootenay region. Today the community has a diverse population, many of whom have moved to the area from Alberta and other parts of BC.
