We live in the neighbourhood and come all the time. In the spring the trees are in bloom, in the summer you can wade in the fountains, in the fall the leaves turn, and winter bring light displays and a skating rink

This is such a great place to stroll around on winter evening. All the trees are lit up beautifully (not sure for how much longer) and there is music playing over the loudspeakers. We grabbed a coffee and had a great time in this winter wonderland.

The approach to the building is a lovely park that is obviously well cared for. It is a serene place to bring a box lunch during summer. The security staff and guides are friendly and helpful. The building is beautiful. It was a bit busy with bus tours but fun to mingle with visitors from around the world

My husband and I went for a stroll through the grounds just after Christmas to see the lights. It was beautiful! One of the best highlights of our trip to Edmonton!

Beautiful location and terrific building. Guided tour is worth taking as you learn about history and arictecture. Grounds are also beautiful.

Be aware of airport style security at the entrance. This stopped me going through as I wear an insulin pump and wasn't prepared for the disconnection of my pump in order to make the free tour in time. Was able to walk around the grounds though and they seem to have done a nice job. Looks a good place to... More

We took our school here for a summer field trip! The kids (ages 3-8) had a wonderful time. They played in the wading pool, took a tour of the Building, the grounds were very well kept. Will book again next year.

I take my kids here a lot in the summer. The pools are good for the kids and lots of green space for picnics.

We love walking around the 'ledge'. Ice skating and glittering lights in the winter, gorgeous scenery and old growth trees in the summer. Majestic building and statues and reflective pool (or wading pool?). Just can't lose.
