Billed as the world's largest shopping center, it contains over 800 stores and services, Fantasyland Hotel, an amusement park, over 100 restaurants, a water park with its own beach and waves, a golf course and an ice rink.
Downtown also houses one of Alberta's oldest buildings, the delightful Alberta Legislature, which was opened in 1912. Overlooking the river, on the site of the old Fort Edmonton, the building has beautfilly landscaped grounds filled with fountains.
