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.

“Great seasonal events”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Be sure to take some time as the site is large and there is lots to see! The bakery is a must, and the Park does a good job of keeping things interesting through the seasons with special events.

“Go back in time”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

To visit Heritage Park is a to take a trip back in time with lots to see. The people are dressed in that era costume and are more than willing to tell you about that time in history.

“Like going back in time!”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Heritage Park is like being transported back into a historic time. It's beautifully kept and very well done! Staff all dress in period costumes and they play a role in the village. There is so much to do & see, vintage vehicles, horse drawn wagon rides, antique train rides, antique amusement park rides & games, demonstrations of all kinds on the way things used to be done. It's a great day of entertainment for the whole family!

“Great value with an annual pass.”
Reviewed 25 November 2013 via mobile

Although we are Calgarians, we just discovered the value of the park this summer. One of the bonuses of being flooded out and losing our yard for our grand children.
One day entry is expensive, so maximize your time there. However, if you are going more than once, get an annual pass. Excellent value.
There is lots to do, you can purchase food and the grounds are lovely. Lots of walking though so wear appropriate shoes.

“Back in time”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

You feel like you are in another world with the old building and staff in period costumes. You have to visit the bakery for cookies or bread, and all the other building to learn on how things were done a 100 years ago.
