We spent many a Saturday here in the summer with our children before they turned 10 years old. The place is great for older kids and folks but our two needed a break by that point in time. Get there early with an empty stomach to enjoy the free Sunday pancake breakfast! Ride the rails and enjoy the vintage theme/fun... More

Heritage is one of the places I like to go to at least once a year. I love to see the people dressed in their Heritage clothing. Its nice to watch them work in the horse shoe barn and visit them working at the mill. My treat everytime I'm there is going to the candy shop and the bakery because... More

our group visited the café for brunch & wandered the shops. Many were happy that they didn't have to park entrance fees for the fairly brief visit. A very relaxing comfortable time.

Just a great experience to see how life was lived in the past. Trains, boats and cars. Heritage Park, just one great way to spend your time in Calgary.

Heritage Park is my favourite place to visit and it is right in my backyard! I have been taking my grandchildren to Heritage Park summer and winter for over 21 years. They love riding the train, learning about the trading customs at the Fort, the Medicine Man secrets at the aboriginal village, the old ways of the blacksmith, the candy... More

Walk backwards in time from the parking lot to the park. Keep your eyes on the ground and see the year plaques count back in time. Lots of old fashioned fun, food and activities await in this historic park. Visit original homesteads, businesses, and farms buildings. Take a ride aboard the steam engine powered train or steamboat on the Glenmore... More

We like the Heritage Park very much. We have a large family and a lot of guests who visit us so we find taking them to the Historical Village fills the day quickly. There is so much to view and see and love to take the train.

This is a site with lots of potential, but commerce too often triumph over historical authenticity. As an historian, I have a great deal of trouble with this attraction.
