Without Rotary, Fort Edmonton Park would not exist!

The Rotary Clubs of Edmonton are valuable founding partners and stewards to our development and fundraising achievements.

The Rotary Clubs of Edmonton have been a pillar of support for FEP from its inception.

Contributions by local clubs in the first five decades of the Fort Edmonton  Foundation have totalled well over $500,000. Their contributions have included: Fort Edmonton, Henderson’s Barn, Kernohan’s Millinery, Hutchings & Riley Harness Shop, Henderson’s Farmhouse, Threshing Bee, Harvest Fair, Case Steam Tractor, Jasper House Hotel, Railway Station, Rumley Oil Pull, Motordrome, and the A-1 Business car. Other smaller projects were also funded. For our current Capital Campaign, Rotary has committed $2 million for the 1920 Street enhancement of the Hotel Selkirk, Windsor Block and Albion Block.
