I have fond memories visiting Fort Edmonton Park as a child. We'd venture there on school field trips, and tour each building, being imported into the past. I remember feeling a sense wonder, as each employee was dressed in authentic period wear, immersed in their role. My favorite memories are learning how to make candles and being chosen by the blacksmith to make a tiny horseshoe.
I've always been fascinated by our history. There is something about the past that deeply moves me and haunts me. I can't wait to go back to Fort Edmonton with just Brydon, and spend the day exploring each building again, as an adult with a deeper understanding and appreciation.
Fort Edmonton Park is a real gem. A great place for families, or anyone really to spend the day. The vintage midway is fabulous, and if I could do it over again, this would have been an amazing backdrop for some of our wedding photos. The la babes loved every second, and we loved being in such a quiet, quaint environment, rich with stories and beautiful buildings and antiques to drool over. May just have to get a yearly pass, don't you think?
