Accessibility

The  Warden’s Residence, North West Mounted Police Fort and and Canadian Northern Railway Station are wheelchair/walker accessible. The Historical Village is not wheelchair accessible, but can be managed by individuals with limited walking abilities who do not tire easily.

The Fort Heritage Precinct is an outdoor site so be sure to prepare for the weather and bring a pair of walking shoes in order to experience all that the site has to offer.

"The tour of the Precinct was really interesting and very engaging for the children. There were so many hands on activities for them to participate in that they were always engaged. I love that they are allowed to touch and explore many of the items around the precinct. That makes such a difference to keep them engaged, on task and motivated. The learning connections between what we talked about in school and what we saw were evident in the conversations between the kids and the interpreters."
