Great way to spend the day with the family! Back in time, showing our children how things were done then compared to now. A great experience over all for young and elder.

A full day of going back in time, see the history of Edmonton. This is almost a full day trip of seeing Edmonton from being a fort to being a city. See how the people lived and how they lived. A great day for the whole family, something of interest for all ages.

Very well organized and maintained in a beautiful part of Edmonton's magnificent North Saskatchewan River valley. Accessible by foot, bike, public transit and by car. Exhibits cover pre-contact, indigenous peoples, fur trade, railways, agriculture, aviation and multicultural immigrant life.

I've made visits of Fort Edmonton Park and summertime ritual, taking my Children and now my Grandchildren along with me. Never fails to draw them in no matter their age, as a matter of fact, as they get older their specific interest changes and they become focused on things that relate more to their current age group. This speaks to... More

Ft. Edmonton Park is a great place for all ages. There is a functioning theatre, a lovely old hotel that serves high tea, lunch and dinner. You can stay there for a very reasonable price and it is lovely and quiet being deep in the river valley. There is a train that will take you around the park and has... More

Our 2nd year in a row attending Christmas Reflections at Fort Edmonton. A great way to spend an afternoon or evening at a special holiday event. Great for families...make candles, listen to carolers, watch a short play, drink hot chocolate, make old fashioned crafts and wander through 4 decades of historic streets and buildings. Maybe next year my vocal group... More

Wow, what a beautiful venue. It was dreamy. The couple chose to go with a vintage theme that perfectly matched the hanger which the wedding and reception was held in. Dessert was old fashioned pies, ribbons everywhere. Something very memorable. I will bring my children for sure!
