"Activities galore at Nathan Phillips Square" City Hall & Nathan Phillips Square Tip by Faiza-Ifrah
City Hall & Nathan Phillips Square, Toronto: 57 reviews and 97 photos
We found Nathan Phillips Square to be a lively public gathering place located immediately in front of Toronto City Hall on one side and the Shearaton Gardens on the other, on the northwest corner of Queen and Bay Streets.
The Square is named for Nathan Phillips, who was Mayor of Toronto from 1955 to 1962.
In summers we have found people gathering here to watch music concerts or just to relax by the pool and take pictures of the surrounding buildings. We have regularly visited the Square in the summers to watch concerts and parades of various groups (see pictures).
In winter, the pool is transformed into a popular outdoor skating rink (see pictures).
We visited Nathan Phillips Square when it hosted a spectacular display of fireworks and light last year, which it routinely does every year on Saturday nights starting late-November (see pictures). Participating neighbourhoods around the city also display dozens of colourful light patterns.
Ample underground parking is available and at very economical rates.
Directions: From Gardner / QEW, we take Spadina exit to north and turn east (left) on Queens Road to Sheraton Gardens on our right and the City Centre on the left.
