  • Been down a few times for a corporate stampede party each year! Lovely little heritage town to stroll through, and the old fashioned fair rides are great fun! The swings were closed on our last party ...  more »
  • Visit September 1, 2017. $26.00 by adult tax if I remember correctly. Just the superb Museum of automobiles of the past and more of the old gas pumps is worth the visit in addition to the buildings of the time fully rebuilt with the architecture of the time. The costumes of the employees working there are beautiful and represent this period of history. The train is too short and that the boat is satisfactory. Eating there is expensive and is not the best option is better bring what a picnic if the weather is mild. Parking costs $5.00 and the pay stations gave us trouble by trying in vain to pay with our credit card. Asking for change at the counter of admission tickets is simpler and employees seem accustomed to the vagaries of the payment terminals. The kids find their account as well as adults. We have several pictures to offer you. We loved this visit and recommend this park. Written opinion on 5 September 2017 in Wolf Point, Montana, United States.

  • Went on a super cold day which sucks but it's was still great. They had fire pits around to warm up. Gingerbread making place was good. The overall place is great with winter activities. The horse ride was awesome even though long lines for it. Beautiful place to take any age person. My in laws both loved it and that Never happens.
  • This is our family's favourite city destination! We have been visiting the park with annual family passes for about 6 years. I love that there is so much green space so even if it is busy you can always find a quiet spot. We love the special events like Once Upon a Christmas, Day Out with Thomas and railway days. Staff and volunteers are always friendly and helpful. Great place to learn about and see history!
  • The best venue for our wedding! The Heritage Park team were fantastic to work with leading up to, during and after our wedding. The venue is picturesque with so many amazing spots for photos. We lucked out with a perfect fall day in late September. The food was delicious. The format of our day was perfect: 3pm photos, 5:30pm family formals, 6:30pm ceremony, 8:00pm dinner. My only complaint was that it went by too quickly. Thank you so much, to the Heritage Park team!! Lindsay & Dave
  • Great place for the whole family. I love checking it out in summer and winter. Great museum, and great view into life in "the olden days". My favourites are the bakery and the small amusement Park with vintage rides! Kids love it (and me too!)
  • Went for Once upon a Christmas, it was nice to go wander the grounds. You have to pay for parking and the park plus guy was there waiting in case you didn't. It's nice you can go to a couple shops without paying to get in. Didn't think there were as many handmade type ornaments this year, a little more commercial. The bakery is great but be prepared to line up.

Where to stay in Calgary

South of the river is where most of the action happens in Calgary, and that's where you'll find the best selection of places to stay. Downtown, the central neighborhood located on the river's southern bank offers the widest range of choices, with access to several of the city's major metro stations a big plus. For arts, nightlife, and quality of living, go to The Beltine, known for its cafes, restaurants, arts, and entertainment. If you're just visiting the city briefly but want access to onward transport links, choose accommodations located close to the city's international airport.
