An easy to access site on the eastern edge of Battleford, this Parks Canada location has four original NW Mounted Police buildings, situated in the fort dating from the 1885 rebellion. The site is well cared for, although some of the outdoor signs and photos...More

Been coming here off and on for years. Good interpretive guides. Don't miss the often- overlooked graves of the Indians hanged after the riel rebellion, located nearby.

Take a self guided tour of the historical buildings or have an interpreter lead you through an hour and a half tour of the park. Educational and well worth the visit.

This is a nice historical location that has been taken care of and maintained. We would recommend the audio tour as well as it just adds to the history of the area.

Saskatchewan is full of national historic sites due to it being a part of the northwest territories in the late 1800's. Unfortunately they did a lot of displacement of First Nations and ran residential schools in the Battlefords. This fort is well worth a visit

This historic site is well worth the visit. During the summer, actor/guides recreate life at the Fort, and explain the important roles that Battleford and it's Fort played in the early days of the Northwest.

I have been to several forts in both Canada and the United States and this one is by far the worst and one of the most expensive. The fort is very small. Only entertainment is the cannon firing. There are a few neat artifacts to...More
