“Great place to take the kids.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2012

Heritage Park is great for the kids. It's big enough to spend the best part of the day but not so big that you can't see it all in a day. Old time merry-go-round carousal. Bumper cars. Original Ferris wheel. Animals. A working blacksmith.

“Great insight to the past”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2012

During the summer months the staff at the park recreate period costumes that allow visitors to step back in time to when Calgary was born. Ample parking and great places to eat in the park. Salt Taffy candy is great! The train ride is memorable!

“Good Fun - Lots to do!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012

Went to Heritage Park with some of my friend's children. They loved the steam train rude and the old fashined candy shop of course! What is nice about the village area is that there are many people dressed up and ready to educate kids about the life of First Nations people today, and how it would have felt to be a child during the late 1800's/early 1900's. The kids really enjoyed talking to the physician and the homemaker making fresh butter. Great educational experience for kids.
