One Last Time: The Lege (Alberta Legislature Fountains)

What I love about it: One a hot (well, relatively speaking) night in summer, it is the only place in Edmonton I want to be. It's shallow enough that I don't have to play lifeguard all the time, since none of my kids swim (I should really work on that). And I find it really inspiring that in the '70s (or whenever it was being build), that Albertans thought to invest some of their surplus oil wealth into something really lovely and civic-minded.
