Listed below are the very best locations to cry in Edmonton
From shedding a tear on an exam to hearing * this * song on an Uber ride home, we’ve all had a tearful moment in public.
Here are the best public places to make a good, healthy scream in Edmonton.
The Muttart Conservatory
Shedding a tear surrounded by the four glass pyramids of the Muttart Conservatory is a beautiful thing. Sit on a quiet patch of grass, let it all out and take in the beautiful city skyline when you’re done. Crying in the winter garden itself, surrounded by various desert or rainforest plants, is also cool.
University of Alberta campus
The University of Alberta campus, criss-crossed with historic buildings and trees, can be a solid place to get a bit of tears to shed. With plenty of benches, tables, and lawns, you can even make a new, empathetic friend from afar. Especially in the stressful final week.
The Alberta Legislature is a good place to think. Go on a free time or later in the evening and it can almost feel a little deserted. With its large water fountains, it’s a quaint place to take a stroll and feel a little outside of the hustle and bustle of downtown.
West Edmonton Mall
It’s the largest mall in North America and has too many perfect places to cry to count. Be it the happy screams of kids going down water slides or taking a roller coaster into a curve, there are plenty of places to scream out loud. There are plenty of nooks and crannies throughout the property for you to sit down and reflect, especially during off-peak hours. It’s one of the most public places in Edmonton to cry, but it feels like the incognito.
Edmonton Neon Sign Museum
Let your tears flow beneath a variety of colors at the Edmonton Neon Museum. You may be downcast right now, but the glowing and dazzling lights are sure to turn your frown on your head.
The Walterdale Bridge offers a clear view of the city center and beautiful, calming surroundings with the river flowing below.
It’s a great place to stand and watch your tears fall into the rushing water. It’s just a nice place to cry.
