Why We Exist
Mission: CONNECTING PEOPLE WITH THE SETTLEMENT OF WESTERN CANADA
Vision: PRESERVE AND SHARE OUR WESTERN CANADIAN HERITAGE
We exist to provide incredible moments in the here and now—to feed the forward looking energy of a vibrant, ever-changing west. With the support of our donors, Heritage Park has created a place where the progress of Western Canada can be experienced by all… where imaginations can wander into a different time and place… and where we’re inspired to create our own unique history. Together we can continue this legacy of progress. We can build new experiences based on the stories from our past, and ignite the imaginations of future generations.
My name is Hayley and I am a six year old student from Calgary. Today at Heritage Park my favourite thing to learn was handwriting, and about Roman numerals at the old One Room School House. It was fun to write and learn all of the different things like they did in the olden days! The teaching is just right for kids.
I think it’s important for children to learn about the past so they know what life was like in the olden days and to help them appreciate what they have now when they think about how much life has changed. Heritage Park helps kids learn by letting them do lots of fun things like looking at and walking through exhibits, spending time with their families and having fun.
I loved visiting Heritage Park! I would like to visit again to learn more about our history.
