Owner description: When you have the choice of everything from a thundering steam train to antique midway rides to beautifully preserved heritage buildings and homesteads, deciding what to do first isn't easy. Located in Calgary, Alberta, Heritage Park is Canada's largest living history museum, with hundreds of exhibits, rides, shops, restaurants and daily demonstrations and activities to keep the young and the young-at-heart captivated in the past. No two days at the Park are the same, so come back as often as you like for a history lesson you won't find in any textbook. Our operating season is from mid-May to early October each year.

We attended the recpetion of a weeding here in an old style wild west barn. This was a totally different wedding experience for us, buffet style food with the best beef I have ever tasted. Great facilitiies with a great backdrop of and feeling of being in a real wild west town.

Best historic attraction we have visited. The train was an easy and fun way to travel the site. Well educated 'tour guides' playing historic roles. Great old fashioned general store, RCMP outpost, train conductors and gas pump plus car museum. Would visit again, great for all ages

this place really looks like the old west. In actuality t is as I understand the homes are theexact ones from the 1800.
There is the North West Mounted Police stattion, blacksmith, tavern and restaurant, candy store and print shop.

Easy to get to from Downtown via the inexpensive tram system and involves a short bus journey. We were told you couldn't walk from the train station but if you are reasonably active, it only involves a 20 minute walk. Lots to see and do so easy to spend the entire day there. Shops quite reasonably priced - unusual at a tourist attraction!

With houses and other buildings collected from southern Alberta, you can cover much of "old Calgary" in one day.

Well spread out with plenty of information available from really helpful and briefed staff.

It was easy to see how the city evolved and how today's high rise centre contrasts with yesterday's dirt roads, wooden buildings and wooden sidewalks.

A "must see" for those with limited time in Calgary.
