Indigenous Peoples Experience and 1920’s Midway Expansion
November 03, 2011
Public consultation is starting on two new capital projects proposed for Fort Edmonton Park. The Fort Edmonton Management Company is asking residents to provide feedback on the initial concept plans for The Indigenous Peoples Experience and the 1920’s Midway Expansion.
The Indigenous Peoples Experience will connect visitors to the history and culture of the Aboriginal Peoples who lived, and continue to live, in the area we now call Edmonton. The goal of this addition to Fort Edmonton Park is to offer a more complete picture of the role of Aboriginal People in the development of the region and provide a place for Aboriginal people to share their stories.
The 1920’s Midway Expansion would provide visitors with the opportunity to enjoy more of Edmonton’s historical midway entertainment both during the day and potentially into the summer evening hours.
In keeping with the design philosophy of Fort Edmonton Park, every effort will be taken with both of these projects to ensure the experiences are authentic and historically accurate while also being an engaging and memorable experience for visitors.
The Fort Edmonton Management Company will host an information session on Monday, November 7, 2011 – 7pm at the Capitol Theatre at Fort Edmonton Park. Parking is available adjacent to the Hotel Selkirk.
Between November 7 and November 18, residents will also be able to obtain information and provide feedback online at www.fortedmontonpark.ca.
