Fabulous architecture

A stunning building that measures up to a capital city. The City Council chambers are an attractive venue for City Council debates.

The city hall was poorly designed and when it opened it leaked through the glass pyramid windows. The city hall should be replaced with another structure.

Seen two pyramids in Edmonton -- one in West Edmonton Mall and the other, their City Hall. I visited during winter and was fascinated with the lights. I love the architecture and the details. Feel free to ice skate during the winter.

We went downtown to City Hall in early December to see the Kiwanis choir. The singing was beautiful and the children from Holyrood School joined them. They served delicious cider to you as you were sitting in your seats. This even is free to the public. We were quite impressed and will be going again next year. An added bonus... More

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
