My daughter loves going into the different buildings and seeing all the antiques. The staff make the experience really authentic. One year I took my teenaged niece and we pre-ordered a picnic...

Taking the train into the Park is the first step in going back in time. Authentic and the volunteers take their jobs as period actors very seriously.

Fort Edmonton Park is a great place to go to dream of what it might have been like if you had been born in another - more simple - and yet more complicated time. No electronics, running water, flush toilets - I'd like it all (except for no TV & running outside in -40 degrees). It is very educational and... More
