Nathan Phillips Square is Toronto's centre. It is always buzzing with people year round. You can see the old and new city halls in one place. In the winter there used to be ice skating, always a magical experience around Christmas time.

The Toronto sign is here and is lit in different colors. Located right by city hall. This is a nice area for pictures and people watching. In colder weather, you can ice skate here. There are restaurants nearby.

Nice to see the big TORONTO sign lit up at night, the square was smaller than expected though even with the City Hall in the background.

This large public space in the centre of Toronto lends itself to all sorts of events & activities. Today there was demonstration matches of wheelchair tennis from the Invictus Games - a great spectacle & well organised. Food trucks & ice cream vendors did well...More

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip

I am not sure that they shut off if they do then it would be in the wee hours. I have been there at 12 ish and lit up. So evening shots are popular.
