Every year I take my grade 4 class to Fort Edmonton. We spend 5 hours in the park with 20 ten year olds and it is never enough time!! My students love everything there is to see, but even more so, the characters. Staff dressed in period costume are placed throughout the park if you have a question or want... More

Visited Fort Edmonton Park with hubby, friends and family about 6 times and it never fails to entertain me while exploring and interacting with inhabitants in costumes. The park features 75 structures, some are still original ones. Enjoyed the steam engine train ride to get us to the farthest end of the park and walking back to the entrance to... More

One of my favourite places to visit. Love all the different years of history. From the train ride back to the Fort, listening to folk stories, all the old houses, schoolhouse, main street, wagon ride there is something for everyone. Stop by the bakery, general store and the amusement park. This is one of my favourite Forts to visit. Great... More

Early Edmonton historical buildings that have either been rebuilt in the same construction style of the time or original buildings moved to the site. During the summer season all staff wear period costumes. Site is huge and takes all day to visit properly. Transportation on site; old steam engine train, old electric trollies, horse drawn wagons, historic cars.

There is a perfect blend of Alberta's history from the 1800's and 1900's. Great educational opportunities, good diversity of entertainment (an old carnival, actors in character from different era's of Alberta history, foods, crafts and animals). Great for the whole family.

nothing to dislike. I like all the history of the Fort, the stores and shops are well set up. The layout is great with the different streets and appropriate buildings from that era. ie 1905 Street The Fort has many activities throughout the year and wonderful facilities that can be rented for special occasions. An old hotel on site that... More

Wonderful place to spend a day. Train ride for children and an old amusement park for the children and adults to enjoy.Stepping back into history is just so educational for children and adults alike. They have special days through out the season where they have people dressed and play the characters are they are representing. On many occasions they are... More
