Like the song, we always want the rain to go away! But we can’t escape it – it’s going to rain at some point. So, we put together this super helpful list of things to do when it rains on the good times at Heritage Park.
Rain, Rain, go away!
What to do when it rains at Heritage Park:
- Grab a hot beverage! From Railway Café outside the gates to the Midway Treatery, Shepard Station, or The Club Café, there’s lots of places to grab a hot drink and wait out the storm.
- Gasoline Alley – So many vehicles, so little time. Our $10-million collection is buffed and ready to shine on a daily basis – even when it’s cloudy out!
- Ride the rails – All aboard! Our railcars are ready and waiting for you all day. Find a conductor and ask them about the stations along the way, or the railcar you’re in. There’s a ton of stories to keep you entertained (and dry at the same time).
- Take shelter at Innovation Crossing – Learn about the history of energy and where our spirit of innovation will take us next.
- Billiards anyone? Barons Snooker Parlour is the place to be on a rainy afternoon. The winner buys cinnamon buns at the bakery just down the street!
- Explore the Wainwright. Our refurbished hotel is home to the iconic Mr. Forster and the Mann-equin family. And check out the two storey outhouse (yes, you read that right).
- The Railway Carshop – Find out what it was like to travel in style at the turn of the 20th century. It’s where we keep our pre-first world war collection of railcars. Heck! Even the building looks like a CPR car repair shop from yesteryear.
- Shop ’til you drop! You’ll find something for everyone in the Haskayne Mercantile Block in the Heritage Towne Square. Shop locally made creations at the Corner Emporium, Candy and collectibles at Harvey’s and Switzer’s and something for the little ones at the Toy Shoppe. You’ll find something to fit your fancy.
- Dine in Style. The Selkirk has something for everyone. And when it clears up, you can take it outside, on the patio, overlooking the Heritage Towne Square. Add the new beer partnership here
