Do you love learning about history? Visit Fort Edmonton Park and experience four distinct eras in Edmonton’s past: the days of the fur trade, and the pioneer years of 1885, 1905 and 1920.
Step back in time and interact with staff in period costume who portray and interpret life during these formative years in Alberta’s history. Visit a reconstruction of the 1846 Hudson Bay Company's Edmonton House, and learn the fascinating history of fur trading in Canada. On 1885 Street, become part of history as you stop in at Jasper House Bakery for a fresh-baked snack, visit the blacksmith and wheelwright, pump water for tea, and see what it was like to be a North West Mounted Policeman.
Want to know what life was like in the early 1900s? On 1905 Street, visit the famous round barn, play around at the Penny Arcade, or get your picture taken in period costume. Then move forward in time to 1920s Street, and experience the excitement of a real 1920s-style Midway: ride the carousel, take a spin on the Ferris wheel or play games of skill at the arcade. Test your shooting skill and accuracy in the turn-of-the-century shooting gallery. Have an immersive trip through history and find out how earlier generations lived.
