Summer 2020: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, please note that parking at Heritage Park is currently free until further notice.
As a registered charity responsible for connecting people with the settlement of Western Canada, we are challenged with the ongoing and ever-growing preservation and upkeep of the Park’s 127 acres and 182 exhibits. The costs to operate and maintain Heritage Park increase each year.
Proceeds collected from the parking fee will help ensure Heritage Park continues to educate, entertain and preserve history for generations to come.
Parking is $6.50 for a full seven hours if you arrive between 6:00am and 5:00pm, and $6.50 per ½ hr thereafter to a maximum of $26.00.
Parking for evening events is free of charge (in effect after 5:00pm).
These fees will not apply to those who hold a valid General, Senior or Family & Friends Escape or Explore Pass or Heritage Club Membership. The aforementioned will receive complimentary parking 24 hours a day, year-round. Escape and Explore Pass holders and Heritage Club members will receive information on how to register their license plate(s) with Heritage Park.
Shopping and dining outside the Park gates
For those shopping or dining in the Heritage Town Square free zone, complimentary parking is available for up to 90 minutes (registration at pay machine required).
We would like to encourage our guests to participate in alternative transportation such as car pooling or taking public transit.
