  • Lately the ledge seems to be stepping it up. I see more activities out there. Used to be the best wedding photos spot in town. Now there is a lot more going on. Every visitor should consider a tour. The grounds are incredibly well maintained. There used to be some deer that lived out here, but the increase of human traffic may have scared them off. Check it out as events are being hosted here more and more often.
  • Beautiful place. Tip - good pokestop and Pok√©mon go location
  • Visited this place late evening it was stunning. The grounds were very well kept and very family friendly. Would highly recommend a visit here.
  • About two years ago, I was in Edmonton, and was able to visit the legislative building. The tour that I had was well conducted, and the guide was well familiar with the building. I did not have to empty my pockets as is required in some of our state capitols.
  • Went into the water and it was lovely. Lots of fun and greats pics.
