Fort Edmonton Park offers history on the area and is located on 158 acres of land. It’s located along the river valley of Edmonton. What once was a Centennial project in Canada in 1967 to rebuild and reconstruct Fort Edmonton grew to be something bigger than that.

Dedicated efforts to the Rotary Club and the Foundation of Fort Edmonton allowed for the park to now include 1846 Hudson’s Bay Fort in addition to streets of 1885, 1905, and 1920 which depict the early history of the area. The park is owned by the city and operated by Fort Edmonton Management Company.

With so much to see and do for the entire family, this can be a great way to spend a nice summer day outside as a family.

Planning

It is not uncommon to come across a property that is considered hard to finance. This can happen even if the buyer is well qualified. As you can imagine, this can be very frustrating, especially if the home buyer has all of their ducks in a row. Many times the buyer will take this personally.

However, the first thing you should know is this is not about you: it’s just business. When something like this happens it is almost always about the property, not the buyer.

When you are borrowing money to purchase the home of your dreams, you have to learn how to play by the lenders rules. Lenders want to invest in properties that are marketable. It’s basically their insurance should you end up defaulting on your loan.
