Our Stories

Fort Edmonton Park is a Citizen’s Project

Fort Edmonton Park is our history; one that has been lived and one that will continue to be lived. It’s a story that belongs to all of us. There have been historical achievements of individuals, citizens and the community of Edmonton who have come together in the past and present to build and maintain Fort Edmonton Park. Here at Fort Edmonton Foundation, it is our job to preserve these stories of the past and create new ones for the future.

 

There are many stories to tell


 

Tim Marriott

“They were talking about building Fort Edmonton, and that it would be a park, but that it would be more than just a Fort, it would be about the people. …It will be about stories; it will be about the community that grew up here. And that was the exciting thing. As a little boy, I was absolutely blown away with the idea.”
