Fort Edmonton Park, Edmonton

#1 of 11 in Theme Parks in Alberta
Step back in time at Fort Edmonton Park, Canada's largest living history museum. Founded in 1974, the park contains numerous original and replica buildings, as well as reconstructed street scenes depicting events from the fur trading days and the pioneer era. Interact with costumed actors, ride a vintage steam train, and visit the period buildings to experience the evolution of Edmonton through its early history.

  • It is nice to see and experiment how it was the life years ago. The kids enjoyed the train and the horse ride, also the attractions.  more »
  • there are free hay rides, a petting area, a ice palor, set up for family outings, but seniors would enjoy too.  more »
  • A great snap shot of how edmonton has come to be and where it comes from. A few mobility issues (train, street car and dirt paths). The pie in the cafe is amazing!  more »

  • I used to love going to fort Edmonton(been going for like 30 years) but after yesterday I kind of don't want to anymore. it was over priced true we came the 2 hours before it closed but even still 27-50 for 2 hours is very steep. if you had a reduce price for like the last few hours it kind of would help me it easier to swallow. The Fair was more of a disappointment we arrived at 4:40 and the last ride was at 4:45 we were rudely told the ride was closed cause it would take to long to wait for another full ride, even though there was 5 empty seats as they did the last ride. I had family from out of town and I wanted to show them my favorite place to go but I think I may need to find a new place to go.
  • Fabulous place to spend time with family, friends or even just by yourself! Watching city developing trough 4 different time zones is an amazing experience. It's like being a part of an old western movie or so. Everyone are part of the cast, everyone or eager to help you with any question. Souvenirs are great, working crew as well. I've been there 3 times so far and will go again with more friends
  • This was truly my favorite activity while visiting Canada from Kansas City, MO. The staff was all so friendly and the activities and sights were plentiful for an extremely reasonable price. I only wish I had more time here so I didn't have to rush through to see everything Fort Edmonton had to offer. Thank you!
  • I loved fort Edmonton as a child. I actually used to volunteer there with my mom. However $100 for a day trip (which is realistically only a few hours with children) is outrageous...let's say you stay there for 4 hours (which we spent less last time) your telling me that with all the extra money you have to pay to do anything inside the park it's still worth $25 an hour? That's more then a lot of parents even make! Still we paid it...twice (to give it a fare chance) and Both times we had a lot of issues with staff being pretty rude and unaccommodating with strollers (it's a family park so stollers are just kind of part of a family) and making rude or just clueless remarks (one about the lack of a husband-i was with my mother-and one about "how many kids" we had-and it wasn't a joking comment it was a rude comment). I'm very disappointed.
  • I love this park, I've been there four times and this was the first time I saw everything. It is a bit expensive but totally worth it. They do a pretty good job at keeping it nice and clean. If you are visiting Edmonton this is the place to go.

Where to stay in Edmonton

For access to the best entertainment options and proximity to the North Saskatchewan River and the parks surrounding it, you can't beat Downtown's accommodations. Look near the intersection of Jasper Avenue and 100 Street NW--you'll be right next to Central metro station and just a few minutes' walk from the riverside park. If you're after nightlife and cafe culture, look south of the river in Strathcona, or in the neighboring student hub of Garneau. You can also choose from a large selection of accommodations farther out in West Edmonton.
