Fort Edmonton Park, Edmonton

4.5
#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. Plan my day in Edmonton using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

  • Took my 9 year old to Fort Edmonton Park, and we loved everything about it minus the food. The whole theme of traveling through time is very well done and a must see for anyone visiting the city.  more »

  • We had our wedding at Fort Edmonton Park, and it was absolutely wonderful. Event coordination staff were great, they listened and answered all my questions and helped me set up the perfect day. The event itself went smoothly, the staff throughout the day were very friendly and helpful, always making sure we had help and everything we needed. Food was delicious, deserts were amazing. We stayed at the Hotel Selkirk which was wonderful as well, nice rooms, great staff. The cost of the event was perfect, not expensive, we paid extra for a few things and it was all definitely worth the price. I would recommend anyone planning an event to have it here :)
  • Christmas reflections was a blast! I'll definitely be going again. The activities were well planned and it's always fun to see everyone in period costume. My favorites were the Christmas carol sing-along, the Rutherford house tour, and baking bannock around the campfire!
  • Omg we had the MOST fun at Fort Edmonton Park for the Halloween event Dead Centre of Town. It was SO awesome. We were taken on this wonderful journey through a carnal and history of Edmonton. Told through captivating vignettes, this interactive style of Storytelling was spooky and exciting. I will definitely be back. Kudos to the Catch The Keys teams for the edutainment!
  • We thoroughly enjoyed the Capitol Theatre, and our tea and dinner in Hotel Selkirk. Every seat is good and the food always delicious. Winter in Fort Edmonton Park is beautiful and peaceful, only made better with a wagon ride!
  • This place is awesome! Lots to see, lots of activities and great actors throughout. You can easily spend a day here enjoying the park.

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.
