Though we love a good adventure in the wilderness, there’s something special about exploring in an urban jungle, searching for new sculptures, public art, staircases to climb in new buildings – stores you may not have walked through.

This weekend, we spent a couple of hours searching for new places with new art to take photos, to share with you – finding a few new places to take photos of kids in Edmonton, and get those fun, bright and colorful edgy backdrops.

Here are some of our favourite urban places to take photos of kids in Edmonton –
