On a recent trip to British Columbia, we decided to stop at Fort Steele which is located on Highway 93/95, 10 miles (16 km) northeast of Cranbrook east of Kimberley.
There were family events for the Easter holiday and the kids enjoyed the Easter Egg hunt, wagon ride and watching the animal farm on a beautiful sunny day.
The highlight of our visit was watching a live show based on the stories of Robert Munsch at the Wild Horse Theatre. It was a very funny show and the actors did an awesome job.
The library has several books on the history of Fort Steele - Fort Steele: Gold Rush to Boom Town and Fort Steele: Here History Lives.
We also have some great guidebooks for visiting British Columbia. Just search "British Columbia Guidebooks" in our catalogue.
I was very impressed with this historic park. This would be a great place to visit in the summer!
