The Capitol Theatre was the perfect venue for the Edmonton Burlesque Festival. It was Quaint and Charming. Visited the park the next day and loved it.

First time visiting Fort Edmonton Park. Had such high hopes after reading the awesome reviews. Our main purpose for visiting the park was for the brunch. We attended the 1 pm brunch and what a disappointment. The coffee was luke warm, the food was cold, most of it was over picked, there was 1 piece of apple pie left in... More

We thought we would be 2-3 hours and it was actually 6 hours. We took the street car round trip that gave us a good overview of the park. The we took the train to the fort which included an interpreter givings us a short history and the fort itself seemed authentic (one hour for us). Then we walked along... More

awesome place if you love history. 1800's to early 1900's. My wife, daughter and I spent the whole day there. From train rides, old car rides, trolley car, wagon to a 7 dimensional theatre. There was even a real wedding being held at the old air port hanger. Well worth every penny.

visted this Labour day weekend and they have a special food fair going on, it was about $65 for the family to get in and by the time you do a few rides and purchase food tickets, easily a $200 a day. Lots of good local history in a lovely location

I went with family members while visiting Edmonton and it was a really special day. The park has three different sites all within walking distance to each other and a cool train to get you started off at the oldest part. We were lucky it was a beautiful day and I think the admission cost was very reasonable. Periods costumes,... More

We enjoyed almost all aspects of the park. The staff were friendly, the people in period dress also played the era they were from very well. There were lots of plaques explaining the different buildings, and the dedication to detail was very good. What didn't wee like? We had lunch in a place I can't recall the name of, but... More

We have young grandchildren and living in the area we like to go to Fort Edmonton Park multiple times so took advantage of an annual pass. There is so much to do for everyone and especially kids so each time is a new adventure for them. They have favourite places to visit at the park and there is opportunity to... More

Our family headed to this park and thoroughly enjoyed our day there. Lots of history to see, a train to ride, enjoyed some old fashioned ice cream, got great pictures with old cars.
