It's been years since I've gone to the Park for the historical tour, however I regularly go for the brunch at the Hotel Selkirk and have gone to live action, film and musical performances at the theatre. The brunch at the Hotel is one of the best in Edmonton, in my opinion in competes with the brunch at the Hotel... More

Was there years ago during the summer - but had an opportunity to go to a staff Christmas Party and stay over night last year! What a treat! All families should take time to go - not sure of full cost - but I know there are deals throughout the season!

Always a hit with our kids as they love walking around the entire place, especially stopping into the old time candy store, the mini carnival rides, seeing the goats and feeding grass to the horses. And don't forget to ride the Train!

This living history museum is the largest in Canada, and has live actors building canoes and other fur-trade activities! So much to see, from the trading post/fort area to 1920 street! Always a good time.

Fort Edmonton Park has been a family favourite for years. We have enjoyed visits to the park for special days and ordinary days. We have regularly taken out of town visitors for a day at the park. They have added lots of new activities that there is something for everyone.

It's such a fascinating to visit, just the history alone it's worth going there. But there is so much more to do! I did find the rides a little pricey especially when you take several kids with you.

Hi Brett, thanks for your review! Not sure when you visited last but now all the 1920's Midway rides, our 4-D Northern Light show, summer wagon rides, Streetcar and authentic Steam Train are all included in the admission price - meaning you and your family can enjoy the Midway rides as much as you'd like! Hope to see you again... More

I liked everything about ft Edmonton. The buildings, and the actors in costume were really fun to look at and interact with. The staff was knowledgeable about the time period of the building they were working in. I especially liked the bakery where we bought some treats that were original recipes. I'd go back.
