    The Alberta Legislature Grounds is situated within a natural & serene environment. The impressive natural canopy provided by the trees aids environmental conservation while also making both morning & evening walks though the grounds very relaxing & pleasurable. The building is very historical and magnificent. Gives you that European feeling 😊

    The legislature grounds and building are one of the jewels of the city of Edmonton. During the summer, the pools out front of the legislature building are open as a place to seek relief from the heat; during the winter, they feature ice scultptures and seasonal decorations. all year round, the legislature grounds are a great place to visit, as they are consistently well-tended and beautiful. The legislature building itself is also a treat to tour if you can get the chance.

    A great place to go for a walk, stop and read a book. The views are 👍 and staff are always helpful.

    I found the person who answered my call helpful, I did not know who to speak with or what to say but I feel thankful that there is still a way to contact MP's. I am not great at conveying information so the patience is appreciated. I admire that there is still such a thing. Thank you.

Where to stay in Edmonton

For access to the best entertainment options and proximity to the North Saskatchewan River and the parks surrounding it, you can't beat Downtown's accommodations. Look near the intersection of Jasper Avenue and 100 Street NW--you'll be right next to Central metro station and just a few minutes' walk from the riverside park. If you're after nightlife and cafe culture, look south of the river in Strathcona, or in the neighboring student hub of Garneau. You can also choose from a large selection of accommodations farther out in West Edmonton.
