Grandin/Government Centre is the most southern light rail station in downtown Edmonton and is quite deep underground courtesy of the fact that just south of the station the train line leaves it's tunnel to cross the deep valley that the North Saskatchewan River runs through (the train line would need to even deeper had an underground tunnel been built). The station itself has the standard island platform but has a different design since it was built about seven years after the last of the downtown stations opened. The station has various decorative triangular columns and beams to hold up the station's signage. There's public artwork relating to what I believe was Alberta's founding, the lighting's different with some lamppost type light fixtures directly on the platform. Escalators and elevators lead up to two different small entry areas where the POP areas are defined although they are less so than the older stations (that originally were built with turnstiles and cashiers booths at every station). There's a Pedway that leads to the Alberta State Capital building.

The escaltors are quite long to the concourse level on account of the station's deepness

The platform is darker than many stations (in a goodway) through the use of indirect lighting
