Really nice chilled out place, perfect time would be to go after 7pm, sign looks awesome lit up at night and not as many people compared to the daytime

We were doing our own adhoc walking tour of Toronto and we had this on our list as the Toronto sign was located here. Toronto City Hall is across the road so quite a few things ticked of the list of things to see.

If you want a picture with the Toronto sign and don't want dozens of people lurking around in the photo with you, come early in the morning. The square doesn't have much else to offer and you likely will only spend a couple of minutes...More

This is the city hall front yard. Lots of concrete, not much else. We had the special opportunity to walk across the pool since they had recently removed the skating rink ice and not yet flooded it. Nothing else to see other than lots of...More

If you visit Toronto you have to get your photo taken by the Toronto sign. There is normally something going on in the square at the weekends

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
