Fort Edmonton Park

With the fast spread of the COVID-19 Virus, Alberta's Chief Medical Officer, and the City of Edmonton has made decisions to flatten the curve and keep the public healthy. Currently, Volunteer Shifts are limited to online and at home projects.

Safety of our Volunteers is our top priority and our roles are being carefully planned to ensure compliance with AHS restrictions and recommendations.

Mission Statement

Connecting generations to Edmonton's dynamic history through fun, unique, and immersive experiences. 

Heritage Gardens

The Heritage Garden Interpretive Program at Fort Edmonton Park consists of growing heritage varieties of annuals and perennials in our onsite greenhouse; developing an interpretive plan which outlines the garden designs; plant material representative of the historical gardener or era in which it is located; research; following heritage planting and gardening through the interpretive program.
What started out fifteen years ago as one simple vegetable garden has expanded into 15 market gardens, four feature theme gardens and two farm gardens! Fort Edmonton Park employs two full-time gardeners, and they rely heavily on the valuable assistance of the Heritage Garden volunteers.
