Sir Winston Churchill Square information
The subject of a controversial 2005 facelift, this public space, named a little bizarrely after a British prime minister, is a rather brutal treeless plaza where people meet and hang out (assuming it's not -20° degrees outside) and various festivals and public events kick off.
The square's former green areas have been replaced with a small amphitheater, a fountain and a cafe. Around the perimeter is a quadrangle of important buildings, including the City Hall, the Provincial Court and the impressive new Art Gallery of Alberta.
