We loved Ft. Edmonton so much we were married there.

As history buffs, my wife (fiancé a the time) and I have been to Ft. Edmonton on many occasions. It certainly isn't Disneyland but that is what I really love about it. The bread... read more

The bread and other bakery items that you can buy at the Jasper House Bakery on 1885 St go fast so get there early in the day to... More

The old fort is really great, and the 1885 street is wonderful! It would be nice to have more options for food, and especially nice if the old saloon were actually a functioning saloon. The historical accuracy throughout is great.

I was only able to spend one hour before I have to get to the airport and catch a flight. I was excited to get onto the train and quickly look at every building. But, train was only test running and streetcars had a problem too! What a disappointment. So instead, I went into the Theatre and watched the History... More

We liked everything except the food at the Selkirk. It would be a good idea to bring a picnic as there are lots of places to relax out of the way of crowds. So many things to do and see. Something for everyone.

This is kind of a cross of a pioneer village with a theme park and just general wild west attraction. There are historic areas with people in period costume to explain the historical things to you from several eras. There is a commercial midway. There is a scenic steam train although it was being repaired the day we were there.... More

This year's all inclusive entrance fee allows families to enjoy the attractions in the park as they wish. It is about time Fort Edmonton transitioned to this level of access.

Fort Edmonton Park is so jam packed with things to do and see, you can't possibly get it all done in one day, let alone one afternoon! I would recommend making it a weekend thing. And bring comfy shoes! There'll be a lot of walking!!

The Park truly gives you a sense of what it was like in Edmonton dating back as far as the first settlers. With an old fashioned train and trolly system along with venues and people in character, it's a real delight!

There is some much to do and see I would have to make a book. Bring your phone and take lots of photos and post on Facebook to all your friends so they can see your great time there .
