Lots of history within this beautiful structure. Absolutely wonderful gardens, water fountains, wading opportunities to cool off in hot weather and offers many photo ops-popular wedding photo locations. Skating area in winter also. Tours available certain times with lots of great historical info. Certainly worth a visit anytime of year but prefer summer personally!

Great for school field trips or family visits. Take a guided tour, you will learn so much. Friendly staff, and a positive atmosphere.

We went to see the Christmas lights and it was amazing. All the trees and everywhere was covered with lights. It was spectacular

This is the seat of the Alberta Government. Impressive rotunda. Climb the stairs to the very top of the dome. On a summer or warm autumn day the gardens around the building is worth a stroll as is the fountains in front of the main entrance.

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!
