There is a splash pool outside in the summer and skating rink in the winter. There is a farmers market inside in the winter.
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.
When you take you 2 year old around town for his Birthday just to hang out with dad and get "cultured", you don't expect to run into "the man", Mayor Mandel in the parking lot of City Hall, but we did... 5 stars for you
Interesting architecture in this building and there is usually always something going on there. It is right in the heart of the city; dead centre of downtown and surrounded by shopping, library and concert halls; lots of restaurants nearby.
