Fort Edmonton Park - Review
One can spend a few hours or even an entire day here as the numerous attractions within the park take you on a journey through history. Fort Edmonton Park is a must see attraction that provides the best in living history. The park has original as well as rebuilt structures that represent the history of Edmonton. Interpreters and actors in period costumes bring the past to life as you wander through a time that harks back to the origins of Edmonton and its trade and development. Nestled on 158 acres of sprawling space, the park encompasses the Hudson’s Bay Fort, and the Streets, which depict four time periods between 1846 to 1920. Visitors can also ride in a steam train, shop for curios; engage in games and fun activities throughout the park.

Fort Edmonton Park, Edmonton Reviews
Have been here many many times. Love dominion day and have attended a lot. Big tip, buy your ticket online and then skip the stupid long line up that happens each year. You go to the left side to enter. It’s not obvious and not always people to direct you. Selkirk is neat. The movies there have classics and it’s good to experience. Try the train at least once. The midway is for small kids. Not much fun otherwise. Love the old fort. Lots of exploring there. Great to bring your own food. Lots of picnic spots especially further in. Do recommend Dominion Day if you have never tried it.
We purchased a season pass this year and have really enjoyed going. My kids have a great time and we find there's a lot to enjoy whatever age you are. Sucks the trains down this year for maintenance but we don't feel like it takes too much away from the experience. I also find the season pass is the better way to go for families (cost-wise) if you plan on going more than once.
Had a wonderful experience here. The staff stays in character as they stroll through the streets. There are many activities and the amusement park is small and cozy but nice. The photo studio is fantastic. The ladies there were quite the photographers, very attentive and skilled. The prints cost extra (also there is no digital option atm), but I think it was completely worth it. Keep in mind the studio gets very busy and books up quite quickly for the day. We went there as soon as we arrived in the park and put our names down in their list. We returned before the time slot they had given us to get dressed and ready for pics.
An interesting and worthwhile combination of history and entertainment very suitable for families. Various food options available including an excellent bar and restaurant in the Hotel Selkirk. A bit pricey but the food was very good and the staff were outstanding! Take a day.
Worth more than one visit. So much to see. Actors in character for the era they portray were very informative. Amusement park was nice, but the workshop where they hand craft the carousel animals was amazing. Looking forward to staying in the replica hotel they have on site.
