Fort Edmonton Park, Edmonton Reviews - Write a Review
We love Fort Edmonton Park. Be prepared to spend a bit of money though. They have a beer/food area. Meals are around $7 and $7 beers. The carnival games are super fun. Tickets are $1.50 each and the prizes are dollar store stuff.... But kids love it. They also did a live performance while we were there. It was hilarious. They also have pony rides.... If you need something to do with your family (young kids included) it is a blast.
Fabulous fun for all the family. Would recommend kids 4 and above for the fairground rides. Plenty to explore. Cafes and shops to keep everyone entertained and fed. Horse drawn wagon rides, pony rides, old fashioned candy store, playground, train, tram and plenty of walking to be had. Stroller and wheelchair friendly for the most part.
Fantastic for both adults and kids Large spacious park. From a kids point of view you have old cars running around, a steam train all in period costume with a theme park. Simply amazing. Also large adventure playground, 1904 tram car. The shops and main street (circa 1920's) with hotel and cinema are a rare sight. Coming out of the early wooden fort one of the staff even invited my kids to pick vegetables from the garden. This place deserves 6*'s
I love the special events Fort Edmonton holds. I have gone multiple times and still see new things. Great for families or couples. Be forewarned it is a lot of walking.
I've been here many times, but this was the first time during one of their larger events (Fall Harvest Festival). There were lots of people there (they needed to use overflow parking), but it definitely didn't feel crowded. Lineups were minimal, and all of the buildings were opened. We went on the train and the trolley, which my 2.5 year old loved! We also went on many of the rides in the amusement park. Highly recommend going here, on a regular day or a major event.
