City Hall Plaza is the outdoor plaza immediately connected to City Hall, home to Edmonton municipal government. The plaza's dominant feature is the newly refurbished fountain, a community hub to splash in over the summer and skate on in winter. The plaza can be enjoyed by citizens and visitors, across all four seasons.
