Fort Road's Rich History

Keeping our Heritage Alive

For a closer gander at The Village Of North Edmonton publication, click below.

The Fort Trail Historical Foundation was formed in March of 2005.  We successfully completed the following projects.

  • Canada Packers smokestack successfully lobbied the Edmonton Historical Board for the designation and preservation of the structure.  The site is now the location of the N.E. Transit Garage. A park surrounding the Stack has been constructed and with interpretive panels for viewing by the general public.

  • Naming of Braids Park located in Belvedere.

  • Naming of Dwyer Square which honours pioneer Patrick O Dwyer (located at the Station Pointe Lands) on Fort Road.

  • Received a grant of $200.641.00 from the Province of Alberta for historical enhancement at Station Pointe.  (The Village of North Edmonton story) will be placed in Dwyer Square.

  • Images on the barrier wall at Station Pointe that honours the agricultural sectors of the Province.

  • A historical map will also be completed and installed at that location.
