“Nice visit anytime of year!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

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 the fountain and pool is large for kids to enjoy on a hot summer day. Even adults can roll up their pants and enjoy a walk through. There is a change room with washrooms close by. The clock tower rings bells and on special occasions, it can play various tunes.

Inside, there's city information for tourists, newcomers, and locals. I love the community walking maps! There's a job board and also staff on hand to answer questions. Great for events including the Saturday Farmers' Market when it moves indoors for the fall and winter. Bonus is the washrooms are always clean too!

“Lovely in the sunshine.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

A very interesting building and light and airy. Visited on a beautiful sunny day in June with kids romping in the fountains outside. The on site restaurant run by a charity is alone worth the visit. For a municipal building the area under the pyramid atrium is calm and comfortable.

“Icon in the city...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Edmonton puts its city hall to good use, from the piped music from local artists, to great free concerts, to important community meetings... In the winter, the glass windows create an urban oasis, and in the summer, the front doorstep (Churchill Square) becomes the center of so many events and festivals.

I visited our local city councilor and I was pleased to see the use of our tax resources for such a useful, spacious and attractive facility for Edmonton.

“Edmonton city hall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

I like the fact that it is free to go in & walk around and the water feature outside in the summer is also free. Parking is NOT. LRT takes you downtown - but rush hour times & late at night avoid the LRT there.
