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.

“Good Old time fun”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Heritage Park is a step back in time. It has all the old buildings associated with Alberta history. So the buildings are from the Alberta area. The bakery is wonderful as is the icecream. The ferry ride is always a favorite for us.

“Step back into the 1890's”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

Heritage Park is a great day trip in the heart of Calgary. Step back into the 1890's with actual homes, businesses, trains, wagons. paddlewheeler boat, and actual carnival rides from yesteryear. A wonderful day with something for everyone in the family. Check out the Gasoline Alley Car Museum with a gorgeous collection of very old, rare vehicles. 5 thumbs!

“This place is a gem....”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

Went for old time Christmas and liked it very much. The park is well set up and maintained. This was a great bargin and lots to do even though parts of park were closed for the winter. Catch the horse drawn wagon ride. Would like to come back when it's warm.

“Love heritage park”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

We always go to heritage park once or twice every year. We love all the rides and they are all so real (you sit in a real train, real boat and real horse drawn wagon). I also like the summer outdoor free concert (no admission needed) and had attended every single one this summer. It's a great activity for families after dinner.
