Take a Tour Through Time

Throughout the year, The Fort Heritage Precinct is accessible through guided tours. As you take a tour through the NWMP Fort, you will be whisked back in time to imagine yourself as a constable climbing the bastion to view the surrounding landscape. After exploring the Fort, hop forward in time to the historical village, where you can imagine yourself as a student in the 1902 Castle School, visualize life as a settler in the early 20th century, and see how the town doctor lived in the 1920s. You can also explore Fort Saskatchewan’s history of law and order at the 1909 Courthouse and 1937 Warden’s Residence.

Please note that only the exteriors of the buildings in the Fort Heritage Precinct may be viewed without a tour.
