Father Lacombe Chapel

St Vital Ave, St. Albert,
780 459 7663

In 1861, Father Albert Lacombe and his Métis helpers constructed a log building to serve the new St. Albert Roman Catholic Mission.

This simple chapel, Alberta’s oldest building, became the centre of the thriving French speaking Metis settlement of St. Albert. Today the chapel has been restored to look much as it did in the early 1860s. Drop in to the chapel and let the historical interpreters take you back to an earlier time.

Visit the crypt where Father Lacombe and Bishop Grandin are buried. Take a stroll through the cemetery, the resting place of some of St. Albert’s first residents.

Interpretive guides lead tours through the chapel and the historic Mission Hill site and demonstrate activities and skills of the time. Education programs and special events are offered as well. Tours are available in English or French.

Providing the best in living history, Fort Edmonton Park is nestled on 64 hectares (158 acres) of wooded parkland along Edmonton’s river valley. What began as a Canada Centennial project in 1967 to reconstruct the old Fort Edmonton, quickly grew to encompass much more. Thanks to the dedicated efforts of the Rotary Club of Edmonton and the Fort Edmonton Foundation, the Park now includes the 1846 Hudson’s Bay Fort as well as the Streets of 1885, 1905, and 1920, depicting the evolution of Edmonton’s early history. Fort Edmonton Park is owned by the City of Edmonton and operated by the Fort Edmonton Management Company.

Events include a Canada Day event, and weekly cinema series in their Theatre.

Jurassic Forest

2-23210 Township Road 564, Gibbons
780 470 2446

The days of the dinosaurs roar to life again in Jurassic Forest, a 40-acre prehistoric preserve, just minutes from Edmonton and millions of years from the present.

Gigantic, life-sized and startlingly realistic dinosaurs live and breathe in Jurassic Forest.

Massive and majestic vegetarians like Stegosaurus and Triceratops peacefully graze while deadly meat eaters like Albertosaurus and the lethal Tyrannosaurus rex hunt down their prey or battle one another for supremacy.

Human visitors to the Forest will enjoy guided safaris with expert Jurassic Forest staff. Families, school children and corporate guests will watch dinosaurs in action, dig for ancient remains and camp and picnic in a land populated with plants and animals that ruled the planet 250 million years ago.

Jurassic Forest is set in an old growth forest. The park has been designed to minimize the impact on the forest and utilize the natural setting to enhance the display of our dinosaurs and to provide an opportunity for you to experience and learn about some of the flora and fauna indigenous to the Edmonton area.
