Love coming here. Great way to spend a nice day in the summer. Tons of things to do, lots of interaction. Super fun. The theatre is by far the coolest I have been to. I live in Edmonton, and go every year!

All you need to know about history of Edmonton can be found here, the Fort Edmonton Park. My friends loved this place so much. You should visit this if you come to Edmonton

This has an authentic feel and look as life was many years ago. Staff on site were in character and also answered any questions in a style of the era. Fascinating and I know I will be back. Despite the steam train being overhauled, it...More

I'm guessing that the park is open year-round, but especially during the "green season" in Edmonton. And as Sep. 4 2019 mai be part of the Labour Day long weekend, it should be open. Your best bet would be to check the... More

Reitman’s or the Royal Alberta Museum? (4 Replies)
Hi Folks ~~~~~~ a friend is travelling to Edmonton and as I used to live here asked me what attractions to see. I fondly remember Fort Edmonton as being one of the best places to spend a day and - way back when - the Royal Alberta Museum was one of my favourites too. So we venture over here to look these attractions up in the “what to do” section. Not surprisingly Fort Edmonton is number one but the Royal Alberta museum is listed at #44 of 48? So here is the kicker - how the heck did...More

That seems totally bizarre to me. I love the Museum - I even got married there. I would still recommend it to your friend for sure. I'm going to be going there soon to check out the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibit.

Writing on Stone PP and Waterton Lakes NP are quite a distance apart, I hope you are aware of that. From the way your post is written it gives me the impression that you think they are close by. Having said that, Writing on Stone PP is worth the detour. Early morning and late evening when the sun is at its lowest is the best time to view the pictoglyphs. You don't mention how much time you have for your road trip. If you have some time to spare you may want to detour south while at...More
