Check out the amazing, kid-friendly wading pools out back of the legislature! Several pools for wading, splashing, even swimming, some with shade and benches nearby to keep parents dry. A great place to rub shoulders with locals from around the world and stay cool in the summer. And right at an LRT stop.

The building is beautiful both inside and out with beautiful huge marble pillars in the atrium. A very interesting and free tour was given with lots of interesting info. The grounds outside the building are also beautiful and well cared for with beautiful fountains and pools of water as well as sites of interest.There is also a nice little museum... More

Limited menu in a cafeteria setting that is adequate but less than it used to be. Better choices just north on 109 street. Ok for coffee break or light breakfast.

Beautiful building and surrounding gardens. Did not go inside but just walked around. The fountain and reflecting pool add a classic touch

The grounds and parks are beautiful, especially the changing of seasons from summer to fall. The fountains are relaxing and the flowers are bright colors.

We drove around the site twice and couldn't figure out where to park or if there were tours available (as it says on their website). Signage is definitely poor.

The staff gave us a free tour and told the kids all about the place. They even let the kids try out the acoustics in the round room. :-)

The legislature building is a great finding, I passed and admired the building last week and decided to go today to check the inside, there are free tours every 30 minutes (even on weekends) that can show you really cool parts of the building, if you don't take the tour you are missing 90% of the fun, once inside you...

Invested an hour to visit this great building at the heart of Edmonton and at the centre of Alberta politcs. Took the guided tour with an very intelligent young man who explained the history of Alberta and the contributions of all the characters depicted in the many stautes and paintings which adorn the wall of this impressive Legislative Building.

We were given a tour by Aleyne that lasted about an hour, and were fascinated by the history of Alberta
