    This year (2014) for the first time, the admission prices are not listed on the sign before the cashiers. Why? The price keeps going up evey year, but the park is not as good each year. There used to be so many employees/volunteers in costume from that era, but the past few years the number has decreased. Also, I noticed that there are far fewer visitors each year.

    A flat rate for admission of about $10 would bring more people to the park Taxpayers already fund it, too.

    We used to bring our kids there, today we brought our grand kids and I am very very angry and embarrassed. We used to come and the past was brought alive with summer students dressed in costumes of the day. You never knew where and when and what the students were going to do next. It was exciting for kids/parents and grandparents
    Today, for 2 grandparents and a 4 and 7 year old - $60.30 to get in after the ferris wheel/ merri-go-round cookies/drinks and ice cream about $90.00.

    Yes, it is well maintained, but truly...Read More

    As Grandparents, we purchased season tickets for the extended family and especially our three year old Grandson. I see people complaining that one visit is expensive and it is; so buy sesaon tickets and it is one of the best 1/2 day trips around. We go every second weekend to 'drop out' of the hustle and bustle of city life and lose ourselves on old old Fort Edmonton. We avoid the extra cost of the Ferris wheel park, but really enjoy the steam locomotive [ he knows the engineers and conductors by name], the street cars, all of the many attractions,...Read More

    The yearly Easter egg hunt is fun. Get there after the rush is over. Boardwalks make getting around with a stroller convenient. Can be muddy!

Yes, it is well maintained, but truly disgusting to see the complete lack of summer students and the incredible way they brought the past to life.

We go every second weekend to 'drop out' of the hustle and bustle of city life and lose ourselves on old old Fort Edmonton. We avoid the extra cost of the Ferris wheel park, but really enjoy the steam locomotive [ he knows the engineers and conductors by name], the street cars, all of the many attractions, actors, horses, pigs, goats, chickens, roosters. The pony rides are extra, but cheap enough and our little guy loves it; You do not have to buy the ice cream [which is a spectacular treat occasionally], do as we do and bring a family picnic with your own treats.

Season tickets for Fort Edmonton is just about the best value your going to find.
