    By the old and new city hall, this is where many outdoor events take place in Toronto - new year's eve celebrations, rallies, TV competitions, marathons end and start etc. Located by the Eaton Center

    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.

  • Melanie C.

    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.

    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!
