Fort Edmonton was the fur trade headquarters of the Hudson’s Bay Company for a vast territory that encompassed what is today southern and central Alberta and south-eastern Saskatchewan. There were five Fort Edmonton sites. The final 1831 edition was located on what is now the site of Alberta’s Provincial Legislature. Although dismantled in 1915, the City of Edmonton operates a reconstructed fort at Fort Edmonton Park which brings this period back to life. Join the costumed historical interpreters and experience life as it was at the 1846 Hudson’s Bay fort and Cree Encampment. The Park also showcases Edmonton’s history of 1885, 1905 and 1920, which are also interpreted through period streetscapes and exciting programs for all ages.

The site is open mid-May to end-September and is located on Fox Drive and Whitemud Drive.
