We end up visiting Fort Edmonton at least once a year, usually with guests or other visitors. It's large enough, and well produced in terms of well trained and informed actors. Obviously family friendly, it's got enough of interest to the casual history buff, too.

The past few years Fort Edmonton has ramped up production as far as providing visitors with an experience straight from the past, as you step through the admission area, you swear you have walked through a portal and into a century ago, the sights and sounds are authentic and the volunteers really make the park what it is.

You must go here at least once. Its a piece of Edmonton's history preserved in this great little park. They have Weddings here and all summer there is much hustle and bustle. Food from the past the whole kit and kaboodle. Excellent

There is a lot to see at Fort Edmonton Park. Some weekends they also have shows. There are all kind of rides for kids and even some ponies. You can take the old fashion train or car street or you can walk through the park.

I love Fort Edmonton and so do my kids. I used to live right near it and went all the time growing up. It is great to take my kids there and experience what it has to offer and the history of where I grew up.

The Christmas Pantomime far surpassed my expectations...it was outstanding! I had both my parents and in-laws in town and wanted to take them to a show. A very reasonable price and in a historic theatre I decided on the Pantomime at the Capitol Theatre despite not really knowing what a pantomime was. This show did not disappoint, highly entertaining, my... More

I live in Edmonton, and I always make the point of going here at least once a year. Everything at Fort Edmonton is very cool, and my highlight is being able to ride the train (I have only been able to ride it once). The train is a rare experience, but if you do not get to ride it, ride... More

Just spent the afternoon at Fort Edmonton Park. It was chilly, -14 deg C, but with the featured buildings spaced out nicely, and warm interiors we did not get too cold... Even our friends from down south were enjoying the park, and not moaning about the weather. Just a note, it does open at 3 pm until 7:30. But being... More

Fort Edmonton Park carries you through from the beginning of the Fort through to the recent past of the early 1900's. Its so authentic and in such a beautiful setting. II always manage to find a unique gift in one of the stores of yesteryear, or to taste the yummy baked goods from the bakery or just windowshop. Take the... More
