Stunning inside and out, the Muttart Conservatory is great for an architecture shot with the glass pyramids behind you, or go right in and pose in four different plant landscapes, from lush tropical environments to the dry heat of the desert.

A bit of a controversial art installment in the city but beautiful nonetheless, the Talus Dome is nestled near the Quesnell Bridge and Fox Drive. Made up of nearly 1,000 handcrafted stainless steel spheres forming an abstract talus shape, the sculpture reflects the sky, weather and the river of cars that pass by it.

Wolf Willow Stairs

Offering a picturesque view of Edmonton’s river valley, the Wolf Willow Stairs are secluded and the perfect spot to sit down and get a stunning Instagram shot of the North Saskatchewan River and forests surrounding it. The staircase itself is a workout too, so if you want to get some cardio in after you get that photo, go for it!

A classic spot for many graduating high school students in Edmonton, the Alberta Legislature building and surrounding grounds offers a perfect backdrop of beautiful architecture and natural beauty. Take some photos on the grassy hills, by the building itself and maybe even splashing around in its many wading pools and fountains.

Manchester Square 

A European touch in Edmonton, Manchester Sqaure in the Queen Mary Park area is like taking a trip to a street across the pond, minus all the flying. It’s a unique block that is a perfect street backdrop for that insta shot. It’s vibrant and bold, and is certainly an Instagram-worthy spot in Edmonton you need on your feed.

It’s one of the most recognizable murals out of the many around Old Strathcona, the Crawford Block Mural is a great way to lighten up your Instagram feed with a splash of colour and a very unique look. This large-scale mural was painted by world-renowned artist Okuda San Migue, so if you are looking for a one of a kind photo, this is it.
