The cast and story line of this play was simply brilliant! The story line captures reference to people and locations in Edmonton. Family friendly.. Interactive... Hilarious! This play and it's actors delivered a story better than some plays at the citadel. A group of 4 adults, we all completely enjoyed this play... High entertainment value. I real shame it's not...

A trip to Fort Edmonton is always a great time. We recently went to two events being held at the Capital theatre and enjoyed them both. The actors were great. We were also able to enjoy the streets and attractions earlier in the season. A fun place to take children, although make sure you have a stroller for the younger... More

A wonderful journey back into history. The park starts at the roots of Edmonton's beginning to present day. Tour the hotels, the amusement park, take a ride on the steam train or have lunch in the café. A fun place for all ages.

Love this place! Spend the day experiencing the park through the carousel, or horse rides or watching hay making. The Hotel Selkirk has beautiful restaurant and bar and of course gorgeous hotel rooms if you want to spend the night. The Capitol Theatre is an exact replica of the original theatre that I used to go to as a child... More

Great place to spend the day, learn a bit about the past and enjoy some good food. I enjoyed riding the trolley going to the midway and looking at the old cars. Don't forget to stop in the old bar for a drink.

I have been to Fort Edmonton Park many times, with my family, with my children's preschool on field trips, and numerous times for work as I'm a photographer. First of as a family trip/field trip capacity...even my farm kids loved it. They were so excited to ride on the train in. They really enjoyed wandering around 'the olden days' as... More
