Located in downtown Fort Saskatchewan, and nestled along the banks of the North Saskatchewan River, The Fort Heritage Precinct celebrates three distinct time-periods: the City’s earliest history is represented by a reconstructed 1875-1885 North West Mounted Police Fort, while a historical village and 1905 Canadian Northern Railway Station capture the experiences of early settlers. The 1937 Warden’s Residence showcases Alberta’s Provincial Gaol (jail) history and serves as the Precinct’s Visitor Information Centre. Throughout the year, visit the Fort Heritage Precinct for a regular or theme guided tour. Start by exploring the NWMP Fort and become a constable climbing the bastion to view the surrounding landscape. Then, hop forward in time to the historic village, where you can experience the daily routine of a student in the 1902 Castle School and see how the town doctor lived in the 1920s. Next, explore Fort Saskatchewan’s history of law and order at the 1909 Courthouse and visit the rotating exhibits in the courtroom. The Fort Heritage Precinct is also a great outdoor recreation area where you can feed the City’s flock of sheep, toboggan down the river valley hills, skate under the winter lights at Legacy Park, and enjoy the beautiful trails year round. Unique shops and restaurants are within easy walking distance of the Precinct in the historic downtown.
