This is not a family friendly location. It is very dirty with lots of homeless people hanging around.

We had a few hours in Edmonton and decided to stroll around here late in the afternoon. It is very pleasant with interesting buildings and we would have liked more time to visit the Art Gallery etc. Some interesting sculpture as well.

Churchill Square is the main public gathering spot in downtown Edmonton, and is the location for many of the city's festivals. It is also the headquarters for Edmonton's arts venues -- Arts Museum, Symphony Hall, Performing Arts Theatre. Edmonton's beautiful modern City Hall (which is shaped as a pyramid) and fountains dominate the square. Well worth a visit.

By 1:00 the parade still wasn't there, it finally arrived around 1:30 by then my son had lost interested but we told... More

Second year we visit this event. Always stay in a nearby hotel. The food is amazing, and if the feet hurt, sit down at the beer garden and enjoy the live music

An annual must do. Churchill Square comes alive during festival season. This year taste was no exception. Lots of people sitting in the sun, or under the trees; sampling food, listening to the live music on stage, or sampling a craft beer in the beer tent. Never disappointed by this location.
