West Edmonton Mall

8882 170 St. NW., Edmonton, Alberta

Is it a shopping destination or an entertainment venue? The West Edmonton Mall in Alberta, Canada, is both. With hundreds of stores spread over multiple levels, the mall has a store (or 10) for every shopper. In addition to retail therapy, the complex offers many entertainment options, from an ice-skating rink to a movie theater to an indoor water park.

While the West Edmonton Mall is a place to spend a rainy (or snowy!) day in Alberta, Canada, its offerings also attract people on good weather days. You can spend the day at this shopping complex and entertainment emporium with family-friendly attractions like Snoopyland, a bowling alley, and an aquarium. Make an itinerary before a visit. After combing the racks and zipping down waterslides, unwind at one of the on-site restaurants and bars.

  • West Edmonton Mall offers entertainment for families with kids of all ages. Check out the miniature golf course and indoor amusement park.

  • The mall is accessible to wheelchairs and strollers, and both items are available to rent at Guest Services (subject to availability).

  • Convenient mall amenities include storage lockers, towel rentals (for the waterpark), and plenty of restrooms.

The West Edmonton Mall is located at 8882 170 St NW. While many visitors arrive via car (the mall offers plenty of parking), you can also take public transportation. Take the bus to the West Edmonton Mall Transit Centre and continue on foot.

The West Edmonton Mall is open seven days a week, with slightly reduced hours on Sunday. Before a visit, confirm the hours of individual attractions, which may have different opening hours than the mall itself. The mall is busiest on weekends. Enjoy the buzz of a Saturday or Sunday, or plan a visit on a weekday for a more peaceful shopping experience.

One of the West Edmonton Mall’s top attractions is its underground aquarium, home to more than 100 species of fish, turtles, sharks, and other creatures. Families should check out the Marine Life website for the most up-to-date information on weekly events like sea lion feeding, penguin meet and greets, and educational events for kids.
