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
People always complain about all the concrete - how it's cold in the winter and boiling hot in the summer. I love the concrete. It used to be grass, which is great, but with all the festivals in the summer, and the rain that happens, it turned into a giant mudbath. So enjoy the boiling hot concrete - there's only... 更多
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.
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 ".
This square is right in the middle of down town Edmonton. Reachable by all buses, metro. The Art gallery is next to it and Metro station is exclusively for this square.You find lot of small hawker shops and sovinier shops in this square. There is always you will find a free public performance by some Acrobats, magicians and trick players.... 更多

It's great to have a large open space in the middle of a city. Good try with this square but it needs a bit of soul. The Sunday we visited it was dead. No people, just some empty white tents. Would be great to see vendors, food booths, buskers etc but maybe they're not there because no one goes.... is... 更多
