#1 of 12 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.

  • The best historical park I've been to in Canada. Best to devote a whole day if you don't have a pass. Or, get a pass and you can go back as much as you like. There's always something new going on, or ...  more »
  • Staff do a great job at bringing back time to the day where ancestors lived back in the day, trains and other rides and store for souvenirs .  more »

  • Went here last summer as part of our family vacation for the first time. I brought my 2 toddlers. We had a wonderful experience!! There is so much to do! This park is huge. Be expected to spend all day at this park from opening till close if you want to go through it all. It was awesome to take the old train to the actual fort and also ride the old town train. The fort is huge and has lots of open places to explore. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. I love how everyone is dressed up as pioneers! The old carnival was so cool to show the kids! All in all a wonderful experience!!
  • I love going here every year with my family.I even got married here. It's always a great way to spend time with the kids while we go and explore what life was like when Edmonton was just a small little village.Its a fun interactive way for the kids and adults to learn about our history. Buy a season pass you won't regret it!
  • 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 :)
  • Absolutely wonderful place. We went for Canada Day , it was busy but worth it. It is nice if you stay there in the hotel you can visit the park all day and night. It was stunning and quiet. Beautiful and peaceful. Great staff and good service.
  • Love revisiting , there are a lot of events and different cast members to give you a new outlook on what you have seen before. Excellent experience even just going for a picnic and watching the local wildlife. Perfect for unplugging from our modern life.
