“Icon in the city...”
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.

“Pleasant and Attractive”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

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”
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.

“Not just a City Hall - its main hall is an auditorium.”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

The main hall under the pyramid is used for many functions. The reflecting pool outside the main entrance has an elegant fountain, and that area is a public skating rink in the winter.

“Alot of money for nothing”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

In an attempt to impress it looks like a big, cold waste of space. It does not resemble a city hall in any way.
