We're making it easy for people to get around Heritage Park!

Making it Easier to Get Around the Park

We recognize that the Village in Heritage Park is set between 1860-1920 which may present difficulties for those with physical disabilities or those who may have mobility challenges. We are continuously making improvements to the Village in the aim of making all of our exhibits more accessible to our guests.

We’ve made the following improvements:

  • Introduction of the Nightingale Accessible railcar;
  • Pathway improvements along Resource Ridge;
  • Improved directional signage making it easier getting around the Park to see what is next;
  • Bus transportation from the Village and parking lot;
  • Streetcar from further back parking lots to the gate.

Guide Dogs and Service Dogs

  • Service dogs must have specific permits and certification under legislation.
  • The dog must be certified under these criteria and the owner must be able to supply the documentation or permit for the animal to be allowed access to the Park’s facilities.
  • Comfort or emotional support animals are not covered under this policy.

Alberta Day

Heritage Park belongs to Calgarians. We were pleased to partner with the Government of Alberta to host Alberta Day in 2023. It allowed almost 20-thousand people to access a day at Heritage Park, free of charge. Some of these people likely wouldn’t be able to come to the Park for financial reasons and this day allowed them the ability to see why Heritage Park is a hub for our community and has been for 60 years.

Serving Our Community

Heritage Park is committed to serving community by partnering with groups like The Terry Fox Foundation and YouthLink to offer discounts and free passes to young Calgarians. During the summer of 2023, we were also pleased to offer free admission to those displaced by fires in the Northwest Territories and B.C.
