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 great for any history nerd visit. The costumes, sets and actors were absolutely amazing. They also had a great collection of authentic furniture and historical items too. The trains they had were especially great to see. Personally I ended up learning most from the synagogue they had set up on the edge of town. Wonderful to see all sorts of cultures represented.
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.
Per my standard, it's the most entertaining place in Calgary, whether you live in Calgary or you are on a tourist. So much to see and explore that full day will be hardly enough. Historical sites, seeing old equipment working, kids educational activities like wood craft, horse cart ride, children amusement park, boat ride and versus dollars spent makes it's most economical place to visit. Please keep in mind to thank the silent and invisible heroes, the volunteer force helping there. One thing which might be considered by management is adding a stone, water or wind mill and selling stone ground flour, old fashioned candies and sweets etc, some commercial activities to make the project sustainable.
Wow!! What’s cool place to go. We went to rides in the park. Ferris wheel is more excitement. Feel like we are go back in history to have the experience. We love the rides. And trains looks awesome. Remind us polar express movie. We were excited saw elks in heritage park. There’s lot of fun to do in heritage park. We would love to come back again in the future. I would recommend buy tickets at Costco in Calgary. It’s cheaper to buy tickets at Costco.
If I could leave a zero I would! My Daughter received 2 passes for her birthday last year that were purchased and paid for by my brother. When we went to use them today we realized that they had an expiry date on them of (2 months ago)and Heritage park management refused to honor them. I'm certain pre-purchased passes/gift card etc. legally cannot expire. Thank you for stealing the money from my Brother and the experience from my daughter. I will never bring my family here again and will tell as many people as I can not to buy passes as gifts.
