Downtown Tips (8)

City Hall

Edmonton City Hall is located in the heart of downtown, right across from the Centennial Library.it is easy to reach by car as there are plenty of parkades available as well as the LRT. It was designed by Edmonton architect Gene Dub and opened on August 28 ( HA, MY BIRTHDAY!), 1992, on the site of the former City Hall.
It has a nice open feeling and one can also take a tour. On New Years eve it is the main place for the First Night's Festival with beautiful fireworks. As well one can skate on the frozen pond..

It is open to the public on a daily basis and rooms can be booked to host public events.

Chinatown

Stay tuned..

The Chinatown Gate downtown at 102 Avenue and 97 Street welcomes visitors to the hub of the Chinese community. The gate was built as a symbol of friendship between Edmonton and its sister city, Harbin. Don't forget to roll the ball in the lion's mouth for good luck! "e;New"e; Chinatown runs eastward along 102 Avenue to 95 Street and south to Jasper Avenue (the Edmonton Chinatown Multicultural Centre is here). "e;Original"e; Chinatown extends north on 97 Street from 105 to 108 Avenue.

A guided walk through Downtown Edmonton!

Okay, to be honest, i couldn't do this tour, but I REALLY wanted to! I did get a personalized walking tour of Downtown by local VTer DavidKeeling ... so that sufficed for this trip :)

The Downtown Business Association offers a free one hour guided waling tour of Downtown focusing on the Arts District and River Valley every Tuesday and Thursday from 12:30 to 1:30 from July through August. If you have a group of 6 or more, you can arrange special times and days. You meet up with the guides at 10121 Jasper, the Associations office and look for the folks in the bright red uniforms :)

Edmonton City Hall

Visitors usually stop by City Hall to admire the building's interesting modern architecture and its great art collection, or to cool off in the reflective pool on a hot summer day. There's always something going on in or around City Hall and tours are free, so enjoy!

Chinatown

Chinatown meets downtown at the Harbin Gate at 102nd Avenue and 97th Street. This gate symbolizes the friendship between Edmonton and its sister city, Harbin. The old Chinatown ran for three blocks on 97th Street, between 105th and 108th Avenues. The construction of government buildings and the LRT forced Chinatown to move east to 95th Street, between 102nd and Jasper Avenues. This is where Edmonton's Asian immigrants buy fresh produce and specialty items, or eat at great Chinese restaurants.

The Francis Winspear Centre...

The Francis Winspear Centre for Music opened its doors in September 1997. The Centre is the permanent home of the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra and several other music organizations. The Winspear Centre is a music performance hall, as opposed to a multi-purpose hall. It comprises an 1,800 seat main hall and a smaller rehearsal space, plus large public spaces. It is located on Sir Winston Churchill Square in the heart of the city, directly across the street from the Citadel Theatre (Canada's largest regional theatre facility).

Downtown City Centre

Just go there. It's very nice in the summer. People are swimming and having a little dip in the pool infront of the CIty Centre. I bet you'll like it.
