Saw a lot of great esks games here- parking is ok- you can park a few miles and walk or take the LRT. the stadium is clean, large and easy to get around in- much better than Mcmahon stadium!

Plan ahead folks. As this was my first time in Edmonton, I had no idea where to park for the Eskimos game. I assumed there was parking close, but most streets near the stadium were blocked for only local traffic and buses allowed access. We missed the 1st quarter as we had to park at Kingsway Mall and take a... More

I'm biased as I lived close to Commonwealth and was lucky enough to work there for special events. It is breathtaking by size. There is nothing like walking on field level and seeing just how big it is. The view from the press box is impressive.

Took transit from a downtown hotel. Transit system was not very efficient as there was an accident at a station the same day. Also a bit of a walk from the transit station to the stadium. The stadium itself was nice. Comparable to Ottawa's stadium. Drinks were not too expensive and access to seats was quick. Exiting was similar to... More

Commonwealth Stadium is a great stadium with few bad seats. The Eskimos could work on the pre-game experience which is much better in Regina and Winnipeg. To their credit, the team does an excellent job of celebrating its winning tradition and its heroes of the past.

Canada's largest dedicated outdoor stadium is a great facility that is comfortable, easy to get to and around with multiple easy access amenities. Great place for a concert or a football game.

Watching the Esks play is so fun in this huge beautiful place. Some seats are covered as othets are not. Always bring a poncho when you come so you can still enjoy the game while staying dry as it usually rains. There are tons of drink & food vendors here. There are beer runners as well who come to your... More

Esks did not win! It was great. Had to pack rain gear just in case. In Alberta just wait 5 mins the weather can change.

Great venue and the best part...all the stairs especially at 6am on Wednesday mornings! Getting fit at the stadium seems very fitting!
