At the Fort Heritage Precinct, you can imagine yourself as a Constable climbing the stairs to the Fort’s bastion or as a student in the 1902 Castle School. You can picture yourself as a settler in 1905, explore the heart of early law and order in Fort Saskatchewan at the 1909 Courthouse, and see how the town doctor lived in the 1930s.

Plan to spend the entire day

Bring a lunch to enjoy at one of the museum’s picnic tables, explore Peter T. Ream Historic Park, or take a walk down the river valley trails. From June 3rd to September 4th, you may visit Fort Saskatchewan’s famous flock of sheep who roam throughout Peter T. Ream Historic Park, Thursdays through Sundays, 1:00 pm – 8:00 pm.

The Fort Heritage Precinct does not offer concession services, however there are many local eateries a few minutes walk away in downtown Fort Saskatchewan.

Take a Tour

The Fort Heritage Precinct is best experienced through a guided interpretive tour.

 Accessibility

Both the North West Mounted Police Fort and Warden’s Residence 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 spend a couple of hours experiencing all that the site has to offer.

"This is such a fantastic program. I have not attended it since it moved to the fort, but I find these facilities even better than the previous ones. My students were so enthusiastic about this program and about returning for part 2. I will definitely be coming back next year."
