  • This is such a cool village. Reminds me of an old town, and gasoline alley is such an amazing building with historic cars and gasoline pumps. We went to a wedding at this venue, and it was incredibly colourful, with lots of lights and flair. Definitely a cool, and unique, place for those looking for a wedding venue.
  • Very informative...Amazing historical place... recommended for all age.. we enjoy dining after our tour..They have done a great job of making this place, relaxing and informative place to visit... ✈🍁🍸🍹🍁
  • Went there with my brother paul .took me there for the day its very neat seeing the old cars and old town to and animales only thing didnt like was the boat ride that did suck train was short good ride i would come back again
  • Just had our brunch wedding at the Selkirk Grille on September 4th. It was amazing. The staff were attentive and lovely and the venue was beautiful. The venue and catering prices were reasonable and easily customized where needed. The whole end-to-end process was fantastic. We had a very short engagement (45 days!) but had no problems with the venue or the catering services provided. Steven Kellier and Jackie Wilcox worked with me to ensure all concerns and request were addressed and managed swiftly and appropriately - keeping both my wedding planner and I in the loop and updated as required. After the ceremony and brunch reception, we entered into the park to take some great photos. Jackie was able to coordinate with the agriculture team to ensure we were able to get a few photos with Bart, the Park's local donkey. Everything we had ever wanted from a wedding came true, seamlessly. I would absolutely recommend Heritage Park to anyone considering planning a special event!
  • Great "living museum" filled with volunteers and staff during the summer months. Don't miss the antique midway! Staff and volunteers throughout the park are great to talk to about cooking on wood stoves, running antique engines, farming in pioneer times, etc. Club Cafe has great comfort food like traditional breakfasts, soup, sandwiches, and fresh pie for dessert. Winter season has only a limited "Gasoline Alley" exhibit with about 30 antique cars and trucks on display.
