Fort Edmonton Park

Fort Edmonton Park takes you on a thrilling journey through Edmonton's fascinating history, from the Fur Trade era to the Roaring Twenties. Take a horse-drawn wagon through the Settlement Era on 1885 Street, see the Municipal Era on 1905 Street, then ride a vintage streetcar to the Metropolitan Era on 1920 Street. The Indigenous Peoples Experience is an awe-inspiring addition to the park's exciting offerings.
