Heritage Park Historical Village is Calgary’s premier tourist attraction and one of North America’s largest and most successful living history museums. Conveniently located in the heart of southwest Calgary, Heritage Park is situated on prime parkland surrounded on three sides by the Glenmore Reservoir. The majestic Rocky Mountains form a fitting backdrop that completes the Park’s beautiful surroundings.
Throughout the year, guests have the opportunity to interact with nearly 100 years of history. Heritage Park’s exhibits span the early 1860s fur trade to the petroleum and automobile-dominated 1950s and are situated in four locations around the park.
