This is a must do visit if you come to Edmonton or even if you live in Edmonton. It never gets old to visit this park, with the beautiful 1800 streets and transportation. You're never too old to ride on that train. Each house has a fascinating story, most times illustrated by great actors and the Fort itself is humbling and grander than you might expect. Do not hesitate to prepare some time to spend here. Allow several hours to visit and play around.
Amazing experience. It helps us understand to appreciate the comfort of modern times. The park takes you through 1800 to early 1900s. So authentic and you forget the outside world. Amazing stuff for kids to do like street cars, trains, carousel, giant wheels etc. Great history lesson for newcomers to Canada, children and out of town visitors.
Fantastic place to visit in the summer! A great way to experience and live the way Edmonton did through the generations. Different decades and centuries of history to explore. I particularly enjoy stopping by the auto shop and looking at the old cars. The Capitol Theatre is a hit as well - They have a show that runs frequently outlining the experience of people in Edmonton which is really cool. Then of course there is the fort - hard to believe that people would have lived like that. Certainly makes you appreciate a lot of the modern amenities! And if all of that doesn't turn your crank at minimum it's a beautiful summer walk in the Edmonton river valley.
My family and I loved this attraction. It's a class act. The volunteers that help out at the park really make the park come alive. They give very friendly talks in a natural way about the era they depicting. I love how the park holds true to Edmonton and the time line of the park. Go bring your family and you will realize one day is not nearly enough and you will go again! Loved it! Easy 5 stars!
This park captures the history of Edmonton in a very nice way. It is close to downtown and is used for several western type movies, along with period time movies. The exhibits are well done and are time correct. If you have a day to spend then stop in at this hidden gem.
