The City is looking at opportunities to redevelop Centennial Plaza to create a more attractive, welcoming and accessible destination.

Centennial Plaza is located in the Civic Precinct, in Edmonton’s downtown core. Edmonton’s Civic Precinct encompasses City Hall, Sir Winston Churchill Square, Stanley A. Milner Library and Centennial Plaza.

Centennial Plaza is located between the Stanley A. Milner Library and the Westin Hotel (location map). This space hosts library events, informal gatherings and public events.
