a nice place to shop, except that on occasion the people that run the farmers market get all hoity toity... had a friend busking there and we were hugging with some friends and they banned him for indecent conduct... overly redneck christian mentality.

City hall is a great destination with the "lake" and fountains to cool off in. At one time, the city decided not to chlorinate the pool and people were not allowed to go in, but there was such a local uproar that it is now potable water and scads of people go wading and cooling off in the spray.

It's beautiful, there are many food places nearby. During the summer it's a good place to just cool off for a bit. In the winter it is particularly beautiful when the twinkle lights go up.

I really live this place, especially during summer. They made it as a public pool for everyone to cool off and enjoy and beat the heat.

The newest Edmonton City Hall is a wonderful addition to the downtown core. The public access is open and welcoming. The function as an administrative centre may not be what it could, but with the outdoor fountains and clock tower, it is a pleasant departure from the drab building that could be there instead.

This is a very popular place to go to with your children. We don't have kids but we still like to go here and walk around. During Canada Day this place is a zoo.

The best part of the city hall is the water fountain/shallow pool out front. That may sound tacky, but there is just something so special about gathering with family and friends at what feels like the centre of the city (right across from Churchill Square) to enjoy a hot summers day by cooling your feet in the water (or going...

Summer has arched water sprayed over the wading pool; winter this is a skating rink. Underground parking, with reduced rates on weekends. Farmer's market is held inside on the main floor. Regular displays are set up, concerts or other events areat various times. Quiet place to sit, table and chars, and washrooms.
