About the Conklin Lakeview Amusement Park

While the settlers of western Canada worked hard, it is often forgotten that they took time to play. In Victorian times, it was widely believed that leisure activities were a necessary part of a productive life, and settlers threw themselves as wholeheartedly into their entertainments as they did into their work.

Heritage Park assembled the Conklin Lakeview Amusement Park in 1986 to portray a form of entertainment that was just beginning to evolve at the turn of the century – the amusement park. The majority of these rides were purchased by Jim Conklin for his antique midway exhibit, which operated at the 1978 Calgary Stampede and the Canadian National Exhibition. He made a gift of many of the rides to Heritage Park in 1984. Heritage Park staff restored these rides, and between 1984 and 1989, erected them near the Bowness Carousel, which was a gift from the City of Calgary. The Park added the historical Games of Amusement in 1989.
