Visited with the family, this was a blast. My kids loved it! It is definitely going to take near a full day and get ready to walk but well worth the visit. Make sure to ride the train as it was fun!

Give you the feeling you are back in time as soon as you walk in. Great props and upkeep. The train ride around the park is also a favorite. Highly recommended.

Set in natural large river valley setting close to the University adds to the authenticity of moving from first outpost to early settlers as one leisurely strolls or takes the tram. With a functional authentically recreated Fort, heritage farm animals, historic Edmonton village over different periods, functional old fair, operational bakery and other stores it provides something for everyone. Highly... More

I wish they could improve this more with more shops and more transportation from 1 place to another. The place is huge. The snacks was very limited. We still wanted to explore but we were so tired of walking.

Brian S, Digital Marketing Coordinator at Fort Edmonton Park, responded to this review

Thanks for this review and your feedback Lekim. We try our best to provide transportation options with our Steam Train, street car and carriage rides - however as Canada's largest living history museum, the Park is big and requires a lot of walking. Thanks again and we hope to see you again soon! More

Spent the day at the park and had an absolute blast. Learned about Edmonton and Albertas history while enjoying rides at the fair, taking the train on the tour around the park and also the street car. The ice cream shop was delicious, and there were lots of interesting gifts and trinkets at the gift shop. They had an outdoor... More

I would recommend going to visit this place I love going there however recently they decided to raise their admission price to $20 an adult. Which to me is extremely expensive. But i guess they have to stay afloat somehow. Love the place... Very disappointed in the admission price.

We spent about 4 hours wandering around looking at the various eras. The staff (in character) were very knowlegable and appeared to be very authentic in their roles, and came out of character if you asked quietly when no one else was around to give more insight about how things developed as time went on. A great activity for families,... More
