Nathan Phillips is an urban plaza that forms the forecourt to Toronto City Hall. The square is the site of concerts, art displays, a weekly farmers' market, the winter festival of lights, and other public events, including demonstrations.
bring your skates during holiday times or winter months and go for a couple laps on the ice rink at NPS
Great place to sit and stare and be engulfed by the serene yet hustle and bustle of the city. Sit, think, reflect and grow.
Enjoy it when the fountain is working.
Great Farmers' Market on Wednesdays 9-2. On until around Thanksgiving.
Pay your respects to Jack Layton before the rain washes the chalk away.
Amazing venue all year round!
Summer time Nathan Phillips Square is the place to be!!! Take it from me!!!!
Best place to spend new years in Toronto!
Clean bathrooms at Nuit Blanche!
Skating in the winter is fun, but it's so busy that the ice is pretty choppy. In the summer it's a great meeting place, one of my favourite memories is seeing all of the chalk tributes to Jack Layton.
I am sitting on a bench admiring the building
Come grab some food today at Tasty Thursdays!
Fresh Wednesdays starts Today
Good to visit in the summer for various activities and in the winter for the Cavalcade of Lights. Always enough space for everyone.
Don't enter into the Reflecting Pool. The local homeless people bath in it! Very nasty.
Go skating right after snowfall. It has to be spontaneous.
$10 skate hire, and leave ID as deposit
Rob Ford where are you?
It is always a great place to go skating during the winter months. Moreover during the summer a relaxing place to enjoy a lunch you just picked up off the food trucks.

My fav hot spot in Trono
Go to any corner of this square, and you'll find a great photo op. Try shooting from low on the ground to capture the epic curve of the Toronto City Hall's buildings.
We love Saturdays too! Especially on Saturdays when City Chase invades the square!
Farmers market on Wednesdays in summer and fall. The pecan tarts from Andrew's Scenic Acres are the best.
great for outdoor skating during the winter!
Skating during the winter. So choice!
Don't forgot to visit us every Wednesday once the market open in June!!!!
Lots going on here in the winter. If you love to skate, you can rent them and it is fun at any age! They serve hot chocolate and some fast foods, but a bit pricey. Bring a thermos!
New Years Eve show that Citytv throws = SPARTA MODE
Love it! So festive!
Pretty cheap and u can sharpen your skates here too
Stay away from the tree lighting ceremony, utter chaos!
Do checkout the christmas tree,ice skating ring and the upcoming cavalcade of lights festival on the 26th !
Nice quiet place to enjoy your lunch
Farmers market is on!
If it's a hot day, bring lots of water, sunscreen, hats and sunglasses, etc. There is shade under the walkways, but the main area gets screaming hot in the sunshine.
Nathan Philips' pursued an aggressive agenda of demolishing heritage structures throughout the city, to 'modernize.' Large blocks of downtown, landmark buildings, and neighbourhoods were destroyed.
Nathan Phillips was first elected to Toronto City Council in 1926. He served as mayor from 1955 until he lost to 1962. He served 36 years on city council. He was dubbed "mayor of all the people".
In 2005, a proposal to sell the naming rights to Nathan Phillips Square unleashed a storm of opposition from many Torontonians, including Nathan Phillips' grandchildren. The proposal was withdrawn.
Wednesday Farmers market in the summertime!
