About these ratings

Calgary's Wild West past still thrives at this 66-acre living-history village. Nestled beside the Glenmore Reservoir and just south of downtown, this history-lover's paradise swarms with costumed staff re-enacting times gone by. You'll explore an 1860s replica of a fur-trading post, a ranch and a historic village—all of which are still functioning. You can take a ride on a steam locomotive or a horse-drawn wagon or cruise the reservoir by paddle-wheeler boat. For a better understanding of Calgary's history, check out the Gasoline Alley Museum, home to numerous artifacts representing the city's frontier days.

Recent visitors agree that Heritage Park is a must-see, especially if you have kids. One TripAdvisor user writes: "Kudos to the hard-working people who conceived this place and those who work here every day. We thoroughly enjoyed stepping back in time. Great for all ages."

Heritage Park encourages visitors to step back in time every day between May 21 and Sept. 5 (and weekends from Sept. 10 through Oct. 10) from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The park is closed during the winter. Admission is about $20 CAD for adults and $15 CAD for children (and roughly the same amount in U.S. dollars), and rides cost $3 CAD extra. For more information, visit the park website.
