Visited the park July 1. First time in a number of years. Found the entrance fees to be ridiculous. Canada Day so had a few extra events but nowhere decent to have a nice sit down meal. Don't know if we'll be back. Sad.More

Great place to see and learn about Edmonton's history. Great for all ages. The kids loved the carousel ride! The old locomotive is cool to see.

Love this place. From the moment you step on the steam train and go back in time, (not long) to Edmonton's first beginnings, it's great to be immersed in the different time periods. Makes it so easy to imagine what life was like at the...More

Great place to visit. Staff stay in character. The kids learned alot and loved checking out all the buildings. Start on the train and go to the fort. We stayed the most time at the old fort.
