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.

Amazing day mentoring a day camp in downtown Edmonton! Loved the performers and the location was perfect. Great access to bathrooms and food. Enjoyed the sunshine and easy access to drop off! Can't wait to go next year!

Took my grade six class to visit City Hall. First time visit for me. Was very impressed with the building itself and the tour. Our guide was very informative. The students really got into the mock council!

I didn't actually go into the building, but from the outside, the architecture is very interesting, set off with a lovely, and lively, water fountain.

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.
