Owner description: When you have the choice of everything from a thundering steam train to antique midway rides to beautifully preserved heritage buildings and homesteads, deciding what to do first isn't easy. Located in Calgary, Alberta, Heritage Park is Canada's largest living history museum, with hundreds of exhibits, rides, shops, restaurants and daily demonstrations and activities to keep the young and the young-at-heart captivated in the past. No two days at the Park are the same, so come back as often as you like for a history lesson you won't find in any textbook. Our operating season is from mid-May to early October each year.

This is a deceiving place. It has many activites, while not thrill seeking, it has many activities for kids and adults. They have rides that are for whole family, right down to a mini ferris wheel for those under 3. The train ride and paddle boat ride are big hits in our family, as is the relatively brand new kids playground by the fort. We usually bring a wagon and a picnic lunch, but always stop for a treat at the bakery. We get an annual pass, as it is better value for money

My trip to Heritage Park took place last December. It was really neat to take the grandchildren to see some of Alberta history. We had a nice lunch and looked at different buildings, saw some animals. It was not a cool day which added to the enjoyment. The girls laughed and giggled their way around the park.

I have been there a few times and I never get bored. Looking the way people used to live a hundred years ago is great to compare with all the things that we have now. It is interactive, you can take a ride on the Steam train and the Ferry. The park has a lot of volunteers that not only were clothes like the ones people used to weare, they also know a lot about those years. Fun and enjoyable. Recommended for people of all ages.

Go to destination for visitors, children and folks who want to reminisce or explore history in a re-created setting. You will be taken back in time with the historic buildings and the staff dressing to the history. Lots of walking so wear comfy shoes. Many functions take place at the Wainwright hotel on site that can be rented for weddings, graduations, office parties etc.
To Do - FREE Steam train ride, candy shop, bakery and ferry if visiting in the summer.
