  • We have had a family membership at Fort Whyte Alive for many years and love the place! Last week participated in the "Birding and Breakfast" event ($13.00 for members). These walks are held each year ...  more »

  • I certainly liked Fort White, thanks to the many bison located there. I had never seen this anywhere else. I felt I was back in time where cowboys and Indians were chasing each other. Wow! These beast...  more »

  • Went with the family for a nature adventure outing. The exhibits in the interpretive centre were great. A lot of hands on things for kids and adults alike. The trails were nice and passable with a large wheeled baby stroller. The paths may be a bit wet and muddy in some areas. Rubber boots may be a good thing to bring.
  • Super cool prairie animals to go see! Bison, prairie dog, burrowing owl. If you are lucky you can see a mink or other seasonal animals.
  • Well manicured trails provided a perfect bike ride, with free park entrance because we biked from home! Was excited to check out this lovely natural space and the bison herd for the first time!
  • Very nice place to spend the day enjoying nature. Also good hiking and cycling trails.
  • My kid loves here. The last time we visited, there was an activity which he really liked. We will surely come back.
