This week, RMHCNA House Heroes, siblings, and some parents jumped on the bus and headed to learn about Edmonton’s history at Fort Edmonton Park!


Eight of us headed to the Fort for a wonderful day of learning, sliding, train riding, horse rides, and movies! House siblings Rudina and Lynn couldn’t travel too far before they stopped in a 1920’s house for some tea.

In between all of our activities we had a picnic and played in the park. The swings were a definite hot ticket as we laughed and reached for the sky!

After the park we took in a 4-D movie at Capitol Theatre about the start of Fort Edmonton and its transition into a bigger city called “Northern Light.” We also stopped in one of the gardens next to the drug store.

To end our day we visited the Horses, pigs, chickens, and ponies. The kids loved feeding, petting, and also getting to ride on the ponies! We practically had to pull Adam off the pony – he was having a blast!

Thanks for having us Fort Edmonton Park! We had a blast!
