One of the city’s best spots to show the family the heritage that turns into some really great bonding moments. Peaceful and quaint is the words that come to mind.

Ft Edmonton takes you back to an old Hudson Bay Fort complete with individuals in dress of the day. A Fun afternoon riding the buckboard and the trolly on wheels. The stores sold products of an earlier day as well as current product.
