Ride the steam train and the midway. Try the bannock and take a trip in a carriage. Fort Edmonton lies on the bank of The River Valley. There is a good amount of walking, but also a great deal to pack in. Visit houses from over 100 years ago, until almost present day. Have a light lunch at the hotel!

I had my doubts before going to fort edmonton on september mostly because I read all the other reviews about how many attractions were closed and the train was not running, but we decided to go and it was great. I was amazed by all the beauty and space in the fort, the people is all dressed up and they... More

Even though the weather can be gorgeous in September, many Canadian attractions drastically decrease their opening hours just after Labour Day. I think this is the case here. It is only open on weekends in September. The train wasn't running. Food options were minimal. There were some people around in period dress but their enthusiasm wasn't great. We also were... More

The Capitol Theatre was the perfect venue for the Edmonton Burlesque Festival. It was Quaint and Charming. Visited the park the next day and loved it.

First time visiting Fort Edmonton Park. Had such high hopes after reading the awesome reviews. Our main purpose for visiting the park was for the brunch. We attended the 1 pm brunch and what a disappointment. The coffee was luke warm, the food was cold, most of it was over picked, there was 1 piece of apple pie left in... More

We thought we would be 2-3 hours and it was actually 6 hours. We took the street car round trip that gave us a good overview of the park. The we took the train to the fort which included an interpreter givings us a short history and the fort itself seemed authentic (one hour for us). Then we walked along... More

awesome place if you love history. 1800's to early 1900's. My wife, daughter and I spent the whole day there. From train rides, old car rides, trolley car, wagon to a 7 dimensional theatre. There was even a real wedding being held at the old air port hanger. Well worth every penny.
