Reminder- Fort Edmonton Park is slated to reopen this summer!
Here’s something to look forward to, folks. After years of renovations and upgrades, Fort Edmonton Park is slated to officially reopen sometime this summer! The $165 million project fully shut down the park for pretty much all of 2020, but is nearing completion. And, we’re here for a quick refresher.
The project has three major parts. First up, the midway is getting refreshed and new attractions are being added. Think things like a new Ferris wheel, a fun house, and a new exhibit called the ‘Cabinet of Curios’. Here’s hoping it’s like a Ripley’s Museum.
Next up is a new signature exhibit called The Indigenous Peoples Experience. The exhibit will educate visitors on First Nations and Metis history, using narrators, exhibits, and audio-visual guides. Plus, the new buildings look pretty amazing.
Finally, the visitor centre is getting a complete overhaul. Here, you can look forward to a new cafe and a gift shop, plus a nice entry plaza to relax in.
And, that’s a quick rundown on what to look forward to! The new Fort Edmonton Park is scheduled to open this summer. To stay up to date, check out their website.
