Very romantic and beautiful at night with all the lights. A free activity and worth the time to take for a evening stroll. Suggestion - I can be cooler than what you think because of the wind so dress accordingly so you stay warm.

Whether you go on the tour of the leg or just go to hang out, its a great place to visit. Year round it is a buzz with people. From the gardens , fountains and wading pool to the majestic building this is a must see in Edmonton.

Decided to take the kids to see the Legislature Building as they have all learned about the political system in school and thought it would be fun for them. What I didn't anticipate was how impressed we as adults were as were the kids. Absolutely beautiful gardens, gorgeous building (felt like we were in Europe with its architecture), the fountains...

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. :-)
