Fort Edmonton Park

Zombie Apocalypse Tour

  • 1920 Street

    1920 Street, of Fort Edmonton Park, provides plenty of opportunity for surviving a zombie apocalypse. Here you'll find the original Mellon Farm, without which, Fort Edmonton may not be the haven for survival it is today.

    But what's the point of surviving if that is all you're doing? Fort Ed's 1920 Street has many ways to let your mind escape the shambling horrors outside the park's fence: A bookstore, theatre, miniature golf course, garden, even a 1920s midway, and a model train yard that runs along 220 ft of track.

    Fort Deadmonton's 1920 Street provides a place to not only survive, but live.
