"New City Hall" City Hall & Nathan Phillips Square Tip by mikey_e
City Hall & Nathan Phillips Square, Toronto: 57 reviews and 97 photos
Toronto's new City Hall, located in Nathan Philips Square, is not nearly as enchanting as its old City Hall, which just across Bay Street (see my tip on that). The new buildings have a distinctly modern and ugly feel to them, and they tower over the surrounding area (although not the skyline, as the skyscrapers of the financial district usually block them out). In any case, this is the place for civil weddings and the like, and it is usually the scene of festivities paid for by the municipality during statutory holidays like Canada Day and New Year's Eve. There is usually a holiday display here as well. On part of the grounds you will also find a Peace Garden, with memorials for Pierre Elliot Trudeau and Pope John Paul II as well as a dedicatory plaque from Queen Elizabeth II. During the summer there are usually free shows (art, multicultural displays, etc.) that are organized by the city.
Address: Bay and Queen Streets
Directions: On Queen Street between Queen and Osgoode subway stops
