We visited Fort Normandeau with family while on a visit from our BC home. The location is extremely pleasant - a nice park-like setting right beside the river. However, the historical presentation is every bit as worthwhile - we learned a great deal about early...More

We had a great day visiting Fort Normandeau. It was so interesting walking around the area. I wish we would have packed a picnic lunch to complete our day

Interesting to learn history and some artefacts to see. Small kids would likely not be as interested. Lots of people visiting mnostly to launch boats on the river :)

It helps to have an imagination when you visit. True, the facilities and signage are a competent start, but having an imagination certainly helps. Why. This was the easiest place for cargo wagons to move across the Red Deer River between Edmonton and Red Deer...More

We went during the week and there weren't any staff available. We read all the plaques and enjoyed learning the history but it would have been much nicer had there been informative staff.
