  • I have always enjoyed an afternoon here. Many of the staff are very knowledgeable about the olden days.  more »
  • I was really impressed with how well the park is responsibly managing covid-19. The boys went on the Ferris Wheel and it was cleaned and each car was cleaned and sanitized quickly after each set of.....  more »
  • I went with my Love, and we walked around and experienced Heritage Park. I hadn’t been there for years. What an amazing experience and riding the train brought back so many fond memories  more »
  • What a delightful place to visit! Full of history re- enacted and activities for all. The staff was well informed and I enjoyed the ‘quick history lessons’ given by them. I was lucky enough to stumble upon the last summer farmers market and got some real good bargains for a hoot! They don’t open all year but the website will inform of the activities lined up.
  • Very enjoyable day out with the family. The online ticket admissions was the way to go as it allowed us to bypass those waiting in line on a very hot day. If travelling by car, arrive early to get a parking spot close to the entry or risk waiting for their shuttle or a long walk (not bad at the start of the day, but not fun at the end). We were glad that all the extra events (rides in the amusement park, train ride, horse carriage ride, boat tour, etc) were all free once you were in the park. Another sit down restaurant would be nice to have, as the one that is there fills up quickly.
  • We had our wedding here exactly a year ago. I highly recommend it. Our wedding coordinator, Jennifer was amazing. she was so organized and quick to respond. She tried to be accommodating to her best ability, but heritage had strict guidelines. Price is super reasonable, and the staff and food were all amazing!! When i spoke to my guests they all had a great night!! Thank you for giving us such fond memories for our big day =)
  • Seriously one of my favourite places! I feel like they have something for everyone! Easily worth the ticket price and the time you spend. Be sure to get a guide and plan your day so you can see some amazing exhibits!
  • A quaint little village with some nice picture places restaurants a little train ride and dock and lake for boats. A good place to visit in Calgary if you like history and such it shouldn’t take any longer than 30 minutes or so to see everything there is to see so there’s no reason to miss out. if you enjoy skipping rocks there’s a little trail past the rail road that leads to a nice spot with lots of flat rocks.
