Entreprises touristiques - attractions
Heritage Park Historical Village is Canada's largest living history museum. The Park shares the significant and vital stories of the settlement of Western Canada and how the unique landscape formed the cultural foundation of who Western Canadians are today.
The Park offers guests an authentic, immersive experience from four key times:
•1860s Hudson’s Bay Company Fur Trading Fort, First Nations' Encampment and Catholic Mission
•1880s Pre-Railway Settlement: saloon, general store, homes and businesses
•1910 Historical Village: working businesses, homes, restaurants, antique midway, horse-drawn wagon, steam train and paddle wheel ship rides. •1930s Heritage Town Square: gift shops, dining and two story automobile museum.
Heritage Park features over 180 attractions and exhibits that reflect the challenges, lives and victories experienced by the First Nations people, and those who settled in Western Canada. In many cases, the houses, stores and machinery at each exhibit are original. Thousands of Western Canada’s historical treasures have been generously donated and relocated to the Park.
Situated on 127 acres of rolling landscape, Heritage Park Historical Village is nestled on the banks of the Glenmore Reservoir with a breathtaking view of the majestic Rocky Mountains.
The Park is just 15 minutes away from downtown Calgary and is easily accessible by car or public transportation.
The Park is open year-round and has two operating seasons: summer and winter.
Heritage Park is a world-class tourist attraction, catering and educational facility.
