“What’s Your Fort Edmonton Park Story“ Christie-Lee Steedman

My now husband and I met at Fort Edmonton in the summer of 2008. We were both working there during the summer break from university. I was scooping ice cream in Bill’s Confectionery, and he was serving burgers in Masonic Hall. After four years of dating, he proposed in the Park, and we celebrated with an old fashioned Coke in Bill’s Confectionery. Following our engagement at Fort Edmonton, we had an engagement party on the 1920s Midway. We got to use all the rides and games, and had all the 1920s themed junk food you could ever want. Since we had our wedding out of town, we had our engagement photos taken in the Park so that we had pictures together in our “special place”. We have celebrated many of our anniversaries at the Park by wandering around, taking old fashioned photos, and staying at the Selkirk. 

We look forward to one day taking our own children to the place where our story began.Christie-Lee Steedman

Since Fort Edmonton will always be a special place for us, we usually head to the park for Halloween Spooktacular, Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas high tea, and for whatever else is going on. When we have family or friends visiting from out of town, we make sure to make Fort Edmonton a part of their itinerary! For now we take our nieces and nephews to the Park for fun filled days, and we look forward to one day taking our own children to the place where our story began.
