I personally enjoy going downtown to events held at the Square! It is a very friendly family place to go and worth coming from Spruce Grove to be entertained. Plenty of room for wandering and the bands are usually very good and the atmosphere is great!
I like this place during the summer but during winter there is not much to do here. I should also mention you can easily access this site using public transport.
During summer, it is a very active site. It hosts the "Taste of Edmonton" and various other events. Often a band will be playing or a large fitness class will be exercising. Corporate Challenge events take place here. If there is no activity, there are still ping pong tables set up and tables at which you can eat a meal

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

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.
Activities vary for city to be setting up. Space there leads to many shops & businesses. Non smoking area , water in pool with spray at certain times. Leads to the "City hall ".
