Dinner with friends on a Saturday night was a huge disappointment. The menu we were offered had only a few items on it and we were told the full menu was not available as other events were being held. I would imagine that events are booked here every Saturday in the summer, but no where on the website do they... More

We visited on Friday July 19. We had a wonderful experience. We went on the Ferris wheel and it was really fun. We thought the price of tickets were good if you only want to go on one ride. From there we got on the streetcar and the driver was very informative. We then went to the 1920's part and... More

We loved Fort Edmonton Park. The role players were awesome and had a great way of telling the history in conversation. My young daughters had fun helping with the chores and especially loved the horses. I suggest for those with younger kids or if it's going to be a hot day to wait about taking the train (free) until the... More

There... More

This was my second visit to Fort Edmonton but the first time bringing my kids and it was as much fun seeing it with them as it was when it was just my husband and I. The train is my favourite thing and I love that it drops you off in the past and you can walk through time back... More

My husband and I went to high tea yesterday. Firstly, they have two sittings, 3:00 and 3:30, which I wonder at since half an hour for tea seems rather short. We chose the later sitting and spoke to three ladies at the next table who had come for 3:00 sitting and at 3:50 had not received anything but tea (the... More

We came here with toddlers 13 years ago and loved it. We had to go back this year with teenagers and they still loved it. The "Actors" stay in character as you go through "their" houses and tents, etc. I wish the states had such a good historical park. Well done Edmonton!

The best part of the entire park. Beautiful hand carved musical horses. The incredible detail and time spent bringing these horses to life was breath taking. The kids must have rode that carousel 100 times!

This is a favorite place for our family to spend a day or just a few hours. The interpreters are knowledgable, and you can really feel transported to the past, walking the streets of early a Edmonton. Very interesting and informative, a living museum.
