I had no idea what to expect when I stepped on to a 1950's TTC train and was dropped off at a horse and carriage carrying me to the back of the park. This living museum has been brought back in time in a series of decade based streets you walk through as you travel through the history of Canada's... More

I attend an annual ETS transit awards event that has been hosted at Fort Edmonton for years. I get to visit the various streets which do a great job of depicting Edmonton in earlier days. The property is well maintained. A great place for a family to spend a day. I always enjoy my time here.

I know a lot of people use this facility/attraction for weddings, meetings and corporate events and I would caution you before 'jumping' in with both feet. The company I work for decided to hold an event here, for 2 1/2 days we would spend our time at the Fort. The location itself is perfect and as an attraction this is... More

This is a fairly large park divided into periods in Edmonton's, relatively short by European standards, history. It doesn't cost a lot to enter and unlimited trips on the steam train at the entrance is included in the price. It's best to take the train to the fort and walk back starting in the days of the early settlers through... More

Very interesting and a good look at Alberta's past. A must for anyone visiting from over seas as it gives a great insight into western Canada's history.
