  • I love that the staff is totally into their rolls
  • I think the staff are one of things that make this park so special
  • I don't think I could go there more than twice a year but it's still a fun place

      Take a step back in time to the early 1900’s at Heritage Park. I recently visited this park and hadn’t been there previously since the 80’s.

      Not much has changed, but then it is supposed to show life in the early days in Alberta.

      There is a lot of walking involved in visiting Heritage Park - just to warn you if you plan to take


      young children or the elderly.

      There are trams that will take you from the parking lot up to the front gates of the park and once in the park, there are other ways to get around too.

      There is a huge steam train that goes all around the park and also a steam paddle boat - as the park is right on the Glenmore Reservoir.

      ...


      • You’ll also see horse drawn carriages roaming the park as well.

        I love that the staff is totally into their rolls.

        For example, if you visit the blacksmith shop - the man working there will demonstrate how he makes horseshoes and stay in character the whole time.

        I think the staff are one of things that make this park so special.

        Everything is very authentic

        - from the old time candy store to the barns with old farm equipment.

        There is quite a large expanse of land to wander around and also some great view points of the reservoir.

        All in all, it is a good day out at Heritage Park for people of all ages.

        I don’t think I could go there more than twice a year but it’s still a fun place.
