Brief DescriptionConnecting Yesterday To Tomorrow
CategoryHistoric Site
DescriptionThe heart of Calgary is red ...

the scarlet red of the North West Mounted Police tunic. When the NWMP built their fort at the confluence of the Bow and Elbow Rivers in 1875, they laid the foundations for the city we enjoy today.
Discover the hopes and dreams of the Mounted Police and Calgary from 1875-1914 in a lively Interpretive Centre located on the 40 acres of parkland. Experience both sides of the law as you try on a uniform or spend some time in jail. Take a short walk across the Elbow River to The Deane House, the lovingly restored historic home of the NWMP Captain Richard Deane, now operating as a restaurant.
Open year round, the Fort offers a range of services to celebrate our past and plan for the future:
• Self-guided and group tours
• Gift shop
• School programs
• Meeting and banquet facilities
• Weddings
• Murder Mysteries

Open every day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Closed Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year's Day and Good Friday
