1. Location, Location, Location

Living right in the core puts your finger on the city's pulse and gives you quick access to Edmonton's main attractions - catch an Oiler's hockey game at Roger's Place, explore our world-famous river valley or tour the Alberta Legislature Building!

2. Never a Dull Moment

Downtown Edmonton is where the action is - with year-round festivals and events, there truly is never a shortage of things to do. In the summer, Churchill Square is flooded with Edmontonians eager to take in A Taste of Edmonton, Heritage Days, and the Street Performers' Festival. More entertainment follows in the colder months: 124th Street turns into a winter-wonderland to kick off their annual All is Bright ceremony, which marks the start of the holiday season on Jasper Avenue.

3. Proximity to Arts and Culture

There are 3 nationally celebrated art venues in the heart of Downtown Edmonton:

The Edmonton Art Gallery, where you can catch lunch, have a drink, and observe art pieces ranging from delicate to industrious; The Citadel, where you can grab a ticket to world-renowned theatre or support locally grown talent; and The Winspear, which plays host to orchestras and refined musical talent.
