St. Albert Place

Across the river you will see a large undulating brick building: the work of renowned architect Douglas J. Cardinal. Completed in 1983, St. Albert Place was created as the Civic and Cultural Centre of the city. It is home to the City Hall, St. Albert Public Library, Musée Héritage Museum, Arden Theatre, several artist’s guilds and visual arts studios. Echoing the curves in the winding river, Cardinal’s building is typical of his nature-focused design. His Blackfoot and Métis background provided him with a clear vision for designing gathering spaces for communities. St. Albert Place is the centre of many of the City’s major events and celebrations, and outside, during the summer months, St. Anne Street is also the site of the vibrant St. Albert Farmers’ Market.
