Alberta Legislature Grounds

My walk to work always involves a trip up through the Alberta Legislature Grounds. This is partly because it’s a convenient way to to get into the section of downtown that I need to be in, but mostly because it’s a nice last bit of quiet and gardens for me to enjoy before having to think about the work day. The leaves are changing, but the gardens are still looking pretty good. One of these days, I’ll gather all the pictures I’ve taken over the years and give you a bit of a tour of the various monuments and garden sections, but, for now, here’s just a few pictures I’ve taken on recent strolls through the grounds.

The upper pavilion has some lovely green areas, including this pocket of green and gold.
The upper pavilion also has fountain feature at ground level. I prefer it in the morning when it doesn’t have the silly lights on (they’re embedded in the nozzles to light up the water).
These are simply gorgeous.
