Enjoyed a day walking around the park and then going to an old movie in their amazing theatre. The live brass music outside the fire hall was fantastic!

Fort Edmonton replicates an old-time village complete with a stable, main street general store, wooden sidewalks, steam train, horses, gravel roads, children's rides and more. One can spend an hour or many hours taking in all the sights. If you're planning a day of it...More
