Fort Edmonton Park was approved in principle by City Council in 1966. In 1967 Fort Edmonton Park was under the auspices of the Parks and Recreation Department’s Historical Division. In order to develop as authentic an experience as possible, the creation of Fort Edmonton Park generated an extraordinary amount of research concerning Edmonton’s past. The Fort officially opened in 1974, and expanded over the next decades.

Fort Edmonton Park is owned by the City of Edmonton. They are supported by the Fort Edmonton Historical Foundation, a charitable organization established in 1969 to promote the creation and development of the park; to assist in the preservation of buildings, artifacts, and records; to establish and maintain a fund to do this work, including taking donations; and to apply the capital and income of the funds for this purpose.

In 2009, City Council approved the creation of the Fort Edmonton Management Company, to operate and manage the Park. Responsibilities of the Company include the development of all capital projects subject to the approval of City Council.

Garneau, Richard

Laurent (Lawrence) Garneau, the son of a French Canadian fur trader and an Ojibway woman, was born around 1840 in Bay Mills Michigan. He left Michigan in 1859 to participate in the fur trade along the Missouri River, but abandoned his business as a result of Sioux activity in the area. Following his movement out of the Missouri, Garneau joined the Red River buffalo hunt, settling with the French M�tis of the White Horse Plains. During the 1869 Red River Uprising, Garneau participated as one of Louis Riel's soldiers in resisting the transition to the Canadian administration of the northwest. After the uprising, Garneau joined the M�tis migration out of the new province of Manitoba into the Saskatchewan River basin. Following a stint a with the Hudson's Bay Company, Garneau settled on the south side of the North Saskatchewan river opposite of Fort Edmonton in 1874. In 1885, Garneau was court-martialled and imprisoned due to his previous connection to Riel and for his actions during the 1869/1870 uprising. Following his release, Garneau remained in Edmonton and became involved in the politics of the area. In 1892, his candidacy for the territorial legislature was refused because of the allegations levelled against him in 1885. Garneau left Edmonton in 1901 for St. Paul de M�tis, where he continued to homestead until his death in December 1921.
