The Fort Heritage Precinct is nestled on the banks of the North Saskatchewan River. The Precinct celebrates three distinct time periods. The city’s earliest history is represented by the 1875-1885 North West Mounted Police Fort while the authentic buildings in the historical village capture the experiences of the earliest settlers. The 1937 Warden’s Residence showcases Alberta’s Provincial Gaol (jail) history and serves as the Precinct’s Administration, Visitor Information Centre and Gift Shop.

Watch for the world famous Finn sheep that graze the Fort Heritage Precinct grounds from Thursday to Sunday afternoons starting in early June to early September or take a stroll through the beautiful river valley trails adjacent to the Precinct site. A walk through the nearby downtown streets will reveal several murals and statues. Bring a picnic lunch to enjoy in our onsite gazebo and spend the day exploring!
