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...

We took our children for a walk around the Alberta Legislature building on our recent visit to Edmonton. It is a beautiful building with wonderful gardens and fountains out front. The best part is that children are allowed to play in most of the fountains. It was a wonderful relief to get wet there on a hot day!

The environment surrounding the building is remarkable and is very appreciated by families and lovers. Big ponds of water allow people to bathe. As for the building, its outside aspect is similar to other parliaments of the beginning of the twentieth century. The next time, I shall try to be able to visit its inside.

Spent a few days in gardens/ poolside because of lovely weather but there was a lack of comfortable seating. Might I suggest deck chairs/ sun loungers for hire
