Heritage Park Historical Village - Review
Celebrating its 50th anniversary, the Heritage Park Historical Village is Canada’s largest living-history park. Three key eras in the country’s history are focused on, in grave detail. The first one being the 1860s which was otherwise known as the fur trading era; the 1880s or the pre-railway settlements as they were called and lastly, the 1910 prairie railroad town.
With over 10 hectares of recreated history, you can actually witness the important events and changes that Western Canada went through; to be shaped as we know it today. A ranch, steam engine, fort, school and grain mills, this Heritage Park Historical Village will far exceed your expectations.

Heritage Park Historical Village, Calgary Reviews
This place is amazing. I did not get a chance to see everything while spending the whole day and will definitely go back again and again. The employees all have smiles, friendly and eager to help. If you have ever seen the movie Westworld this is it. Take a walk back in time right in your own back yard of Calgary. I can spend days here and imagine what real life day to day was back in the 1890's was like. I took my grandfather with me and he really enjoyed riding the steam train, watching the blacksmiths and looking at all the neat old cars. He also was informative on most of the buildings and lifestyle questions I had. I got to speak to one of the train conductors and he was very knowledgeable as well as Lorn knowledgeable in all the cars in Gasoline Alley, Katrina at Gasoline alley was also very good at giving suggestions and she even took a picture of me and my grandfather, Claire the server in the wainwright hotel restaurant was great so was the food. Staff is so perfect! Good job Heritage park, keep it up! I recommend to anyone and everyone to visit this place. :)
Overall the quality of the park was good. Lots of interpreters, however only maybe 2/3 were in character. Two stood out as amazing (an older lady cooking in one of the houses took some time to tell us stories) and a lady in the school was very friendly. $26 was way too steep for entry when you also have to pay for parking ($6). The shops were decently priced and food was reasonably priced. The cinnamon bun with cream cheese was amazing.
It's entertaining for like a once a year visit. The rides are historic, so they're tame by modern standards. The volunteers really do give it their all in trying to play their parts. The train is fun to ride but it only goes around in a model-train-like simple loop, so it's fun once. The bakery is awesome. Be prepared to walk. Everything other than the car/gas museum is a fair distance from the entrance. If you have someone with you who can't walk far or long, consider arranging for the shuttle when you buy your tickets.
This is one of the must visit place in Calgary. They have lot going for all ages. The admission fee is all inclusive, you don't have to pay anything extra for any activities. They have about 6 rides for all ages, and an incredible Gasoline alley museum where they display classic motor vehicle which blew my mind. Staff on duty was very friendly. The park is Stroller accessible, however they don't have wheelchair for renting, you have to take access bus to drop off at certain points inside. The best of all is their train ride, Steam, diesel and hand-cranked engines is unique experience taking a ride on the train. Overall, Great place to enjoy a day out within Calgary. I wish they soon reopen the cruise ship.
Growing up in Calgary, Heritage Park was never somewhere I was wanting to go. I’d make the I’d visit ever 5 years. Over the last few years they have done a great job updating the park and making it a real experience. I went twice in the same month last summer and already again this summer. It’s a great day and you’ll need more time than you expect. Side note: We want to take my partners grandpa, but after going again and assessing accessibility, it’s really not easy to get around if you have limited mobility.
