Fort Edmonton Park is a place where time has stopped. During your visit, experience life as it was through historical periods between 1846 and 1929. Go back in time more than 150 years and walk through the days of the pioneer years of 1885, 1905 and 1920. Costumed interpreters bring the past to life, answer your questions and invite you to experience the best of the period.
Take a ride on a steam train, play pioneer games, bake bread the old-fashioned way, shop ’til you drop, or hit the Midway for rides games and more fun – it’s all right here waiting for you.
Providing the best in living history, Fort Edmonton Park is nestled on 64 hectares (158 acres) of wooded parkland along Edmonton’s river valley. What began as a Canada Centennial project in 1967 to reconstruct the old Fort Edmonton, quickly grew to encompass much more. Thanks to the dedicated efforts of the Rotary Club of Edmonton and the Fort Edmonton Foundation, the Park now includes the 1846 Hudson’s Bay Fort as well as the Streets of 1885, 1905, and 1920, depicting the evolution of Edmonton’s early history. Fort Edmonton Park is owned by the City of Edmonton and operated by the Fort Edmonton Management Company.
