  • My family has been going here for years for Christmas for summers it's been a go to! My uncle is quaduapeligic and goes with my aunt on a regular basis. The staff know him, everywhere they go in the p...  read more »
  • Since a child Heritage Park has been a favourite place of mine to visit. Just love it here! Too bad it's gotten rather expensive to get in the gate though. 
  • I highly recommend a family visit to Heritage Park. It's open full-time between the May long weekend and the September long weekend; however, they also have many special weekend events throughout the ...  read more »
  • 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.
  • Bring your walking shoes !! Most of the paths are made from gravel which adds to the theme. Great place to spend a sunny afternoon,i wouldnt recommend coming here in bad weather just because you are going in and out of buildings all the time. there are only a few exhibits where you are inside for a while,family friendly park with lots to see and do. If you can, catch a ride on the boat that goes over the Glenmore reservoir. Its a relaxing 10-20 minute ride and a great end to the day, oh and don't forget to stop for fun on the vintage carnival rides.
  • Great place to spend a day . It's like you step back in time. The period costumed workers are knowledgeable and friendly with lots of historical facts, anecdotes and interesting tidbits to impart . The buildings are well kept and the stores have cool stuff. Check online before going for discount coupons. There's often a buy one get one at 50% off.
  • This is a wonderful day activity that is great for anyone including the whole family. Authentic buildings from the 1880's - 1920's fill the area with a lively fun downtown area, an amusement park area, a "settlement" area, and lots more. There is an old train that runs the perimeter of the property and has multiple stations along the way. There is also a ferry that takes a big loop around Glenmore Reservoir. The admission price is a bargain for what you get in my opinion. There is an on site bakery, blacksmith, ice cream parlor, and many great places to eat as well.
  • Had an awesome day here. I had expected to spend 2-3 hours here. We stayed for six hours! Rode all the rides on the midway, took the train twice, took a paddlewheel boat ride, and a horse drawn wagon ride. I still feel we missed seeing some of the park!
