A fantastic place to hang out on a hot summer's day. Right on the LRT, the park behind City Hall has a shallow but refreshing wading/swimming pool with shade trees, picnic tables, and multi-ethnic teenage staff. There are often food trucks on the streets nearby, and often free music at Churchill Square across the road. A true public gathering place!

I appreciate the uniqueness of Edmonton City Hall. It is fun to look at even if it symbolizes business for the people of Edmonton. The fountain also refreshes passersby. I would love to enjoy this fun free attraction.

We always make a point of taking our out of town guests to our city hall to show it off. When we went this week it was great to see all the families enjoying the wading pool in front of city hall on such a lovely sunny day. We enjoyed the tour of the outside and the inside of city... More

Who wouldn't like a city hall that you can come wade in the fountains in the summer and skate on the rink in the winter? I am a fan of City Hall as a place to gather for fun and celebration. There's also a great place to have breakfast, lunch, or snack at Kids in the Hall. Outside the building... More

A very interesting building and light and airy. Visited on a beautiful sunny day in June with kids romping in the fountains outside. The on site restaurant run by a charity is alone worth the visit. For a municipal building the area under the pyramid atrium is calm and comfortable.

Edmonton puts its city hall to good use, from the piped music from local artists, to great free concerts, to important community meetings... In the winter, the glass windows create an urban oasis, and in the summer, the front doorstep (Churchill Square) becomes the center of so many events and festivals.

I visited our local city councilor and I was pleased to see the use of our tax resources for such a useful, spacious and attractive facility for Edmonton.

I like the fact that it is free to go in & walk around and the water feature outside in the summer is also free. Parking is NOT. LRT takes you downtown - but rush hour times & late at night avoid the LRT there.

The main hall under the pyramid is used for many functions. The reflecting pool outside the main entrance has an elegant fountain, and that area is a public skating rink in the winter.
