Fort Edmonton Park first opened in May of 1974 and has grown to represent Edmonton's history from the 1700s to the late 1920s.

A historically-themed attraction offering authentic, immersive, memorable and fun experiences to a broad range of audiences, the Park is open to the public from the May long weekend to September as well as for a variety of holidays and special occasions. Fort Edmonton Park is also open to private parties and functions throughout the year.

Key to the Park’s operations is its living-history museum component, which includes numerous historic buildings and artifacts. The museum is animated in the summer through the talents of costumed interpreters and volunteers.

Fort Edmonton Park is about to open the new Indigenous Peoples Experience to the public. This signature exhibit allows visitors to explore life through the diversity of First Nations and Métis peoples' histories, cultures, experiences, and perspectives, local to Indigenous life in the Beaver Hills, or Edmonton region. 

Other attractions at the Park include period transportation (a steam train, streetcars and horse-drawn rides), an on-site full-service boutique hotel, a recently-expanded 1920s-style Midway (including a Ferris wheel, carousel, outdoor maze, funhouse, games and the much-acclaimed Cabinet of Curios exhibit), and a state of the art 4D theatre, in the guise of a 1920s vaudeville stage.
