Heritage Park Historical Village in Profile

Mission Statement: Connecting People with the Settlement of Western Canada and Preserving Our Culture and Heritage

Heritage Park Historical Village first opened its gates on July 1, 1964. Since opening its doors, the Park has grown into one of Calgary’s premier tourist attractions. 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. It is the Park’s mission to preserve the history of the early West and to educate and entertain guests of all ages for many generations to come.
