I live within walking distance of the park, every time I go for a visit there are different parts of the park open and different events happening, it never gets boring.

Unique way to see how life was over 100 years ago, when authenticity and craftsmanship were highly revered qualities. Easily one of the top attractions in Edmonton. The Mahogany Room Bar and Hotel Selkirk are well worth checking out. Also visit the gorgeous Capitol Theatre...More

We were there for 6 hours but we could have been there for twelve and still not seen everything, free steam locomotive, street car and horse and buggy rides. So many people dressed period correct. This is a must see place.

Went there for Canada day. There is lots to do, see and enjoy. Take a ride on the train and dress up in western clothes and get your picture taken.
