Heritage Park

1900 Heritage Dr SW, Calgary, AB, Canada

The Basics

Canada’s largest living history museum is divided into several sections, with something to interest pretty much every visitor of every age. If you are there in summer, you won’t want to miss a ride on the midway rides, the steam train, or the wagons that criss-cross the park. The Historic Village houses many restored and original buildings. Gasoline Alley, open year-round, is where you’ll find vehicles from the golden age of the automobile.

If you plan to visit several times in a year, an annual pass is a great value.

Heritage Park is always a fun filled day

Heritage Park General Admission
I’ve been to Heritage Park many times with my own children and now I’ve taken a granddaughter with me. There’s so much to see and do, I usually find one day isn’t enough to take it all in. During this visit there were less actors and actresses role playing throughout the park.

The staff was helpful and informative. Although we could only visit Gasoline Alley and the Plaza, my wheelchair went everywhere. I would recommend Heritage Park to someone visiting Calgary.

Awesome Historical Park. It provides a glimpse of the past thru preserved houses and castles and old buildings of businesses from 1800 century. Steam train ride is fantastic. The train ride to get us to the gate of the park is an amazing feature that costs 1.00 CAD per pax/per ride. Highly recommended for those who enjoys activities under the heat of the sun.

Stuff to do for all ages. It was a great day and my kids loved it. The staff were very pleasant and all dress in traditional clothing and they knew their history. The old steam train and paddle boat were fantastic. The lunch we had in the Hotel Wainwright was lovely and lots of it in a lovely setting. Well worth a visit.

Heritage Park Ghost Tours

Rumors of things that go bump in the night have long haunted Heritage Park. In the fall, ghost tours (all ages or adults only) give visitors a chilling experience of the spirits who may or may not inhabit the park. Prior to Halloween, the ghosts and goblins come to play for more hauntingly good times at several special events.
