This is a great spot to just be. Lots of rolling grass to walk around and explore. The water sites are trangqill in the mid evening as the lights are also a utter mouth dropper. So fancy and powerful to be there.

Every city council has a great idea of a more impressive, improved main square in front of city Hall. Maybe this one will be around longer than the previous designs did. More public wasted money

We spent quite a bit of time exploring City Hall and got a guide to all the art work on exhibit there. The mayor's chain of office was worth examining. It is on the second floor outside the mayor's office.

Aside from the fountain, there's not much else to do here. During the festival season the whole area is very lively with tons of locals and vendors.

Nice to see people dancing away, skating away, and just having fun, listening to a live jazz band, and seeing the kids dance away. What a great event sponsored by the Art Council and City of Edmonton!!

I love the pool in the summer as children splash around and have fun. The building is beautiful and when the new museum is open in 2018 across the street there will be two wonderful places to enjoy downtown with the family.

There's lots to like here. It's open longer hours than Calgary's, and there seems to be always something happening, or something to see. It's also much brighter than Calgary's, which is quite dark inside. Both have parkades attached, but Edmonton's is connected to more pedestrian...More

Nothing spectacular. After all, it is a City Hall. Nice wading pool near the entrance. And the tunes coming from the bell tower are a nice break from the city traffic. But it is not a "must see" venue.
