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.

While I enjoyed the park, it was horrible for my mother. She uses a walker. She can function without it, but it makes her life a lot easier. There was one bathroom with a ramp thankfully, but a few that could only be reached with stairs. A number of the houses has steps into them as well. Not really a big deal on a whole but if you have more severe mobility issues you won't be able to get into a lot of the buildings. The most frustrating was the train around the park. Again, my mother can function without her walker. We figured she'd fold up the walker and just climb the two steps on, but she was denied, with us being told that her walker could not be stowed safely. I rode it with my bf and it seemed like a weak excuse. There was plenty of space for it to be stowed safely. The only positive thing was that after expressing how little of the park she could actually experience a manager did refund her entry. The staff was very patient and kind across the whole park. I enjoyed the park but if you have mobility issues then you may not be able to experience much of the park.
We went here mainly because of the train. My teenage son still loves trains, especially steam engines. We all had a good time wandering around and learning many historical things. All of us, except maybe our teenage daughter, really enjoyed the car museum a lot.
An amazing place to visit. Very well done. Our younger kids live to come here in the summer because it’s less crowded that Callaway Park, shorter lines and they get engaged in the move displays like making butter. Not to mention the rich history of the famous 5 and gasoline alley!
I have lived in Calgary my whole life. Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved this place. Something about the history all in one place amazes me. I love that the staff are dressed up in the era of clothing and that when you go into any house they have an astounding amount of knowledge about it. I make it a thing to come every year and recommend it to anyone.
I love this place! Quiet with plenty of history and hands on stuff. Food is great at the restaurant and the beer is cold at history post by the Fort. Plenty of walking so wear comfy shoes or you can ride on and off the steam train. If you love restored vehicles...then you will for sure be wowed. I strongly recommend especially if you need to entertain out of town company.
