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.

I have a seasons pass so I can take my grandchildren regularly. There is always so much to do and once you are inside the gates there are no tickets to buy. We take a ride on the train,a wagon ride around the park and then a trip around the lake on the steam ship. The authentic houses and buildings... More

A great place to see different things from our past. And the character "actors" add a nice touch. Time your visit for attractions you would like to see, or experience. Not all of them are open all of the time.

Heritage Park is definitely a magic place that bring back reminiscence of past years when I was growing up in a small town in Chile. I go there as often as I can and just being there is an incredible experience.

There's something for everyone to enjoy here, and I love that it's not noisy. Lots of opportunities to spend time outside at Heritage Park.

Heritage park has been well kept up, and they are continually adding exhibits and special events. The hours and what's offered varies significantly with the season. It's worth it to look online or call before going. Also, some tourist brochures sometimes have coupons, well worth finding as entrance to the park is expensive. I recommend heritage park for anyone who... More

We have visited Heritage Park a number of times annually for years and always enjoyed our trips there. One caution - from the parking lot it is over three hundred kilometres from the parking lot to the park itself. However, if you find this difficult, simply ask the people at the gate to call for the bus and it will... More
