That looks surprisingly good, considering the expectations I had.GEC Architecture
Construction is underway on the Government Centre North Plaza revitalization at the Alberta Legislature Grounds in Edmonton. Built in the 1970s, our team collaborated with Government of Alberta and Janet Rosenberg & Studio to redesign the North Plaza to preserve the existing and historic mature tree canopy, improve the pedestrian promenade and terraced seating areas, rebuild the reflecting pool and ornamental dome fountain, and transform the terraced wading pools into three interconnected, interactive spray parks.
Inspired by Alberta’s natural landforms and climate regions, the design will include native plantings from the Prairies and granite boulders mined from mountains made of Rundle stone.

I mostly agree, although I feel what was there before overdid the concrete a bit too much. I don't have young kids, but I imagine more than a few scraped little knees and elbows there over the years.It's not as interesting as what it replaces, but having it open and good sightlines with grass areas to sit and lots of water area for kids is pretty good actually. It should not compete visually with the Leg, the rendering with the rocks was way too much going on. What's important is the view of the Leg not this landscaping.
