We were here for the July 1/2017 weekend. Lots of Bands, indigenous dancers, a symphony orchestra, etc., etc., etc. for 3 days. Fireworks were launched from here and were very good. A great venue for Toronto and close to everything downtown including the PATH.

Only great thing here is the Toronto sign. But we were there on a day they were repelling down city hall. You don't see that everyday.

Good area for walking around and sightseeing. The U of Toronto is very close by. Lots of great food trucks when we came by the area on Canada day. The area could be great for picnic lunches.

The iconic square is home to the Toronto sign with the new addition of a maple leaf. Great place for tourists to stop and take pictures and a great place to ice skate in the winter. Canada celebrations should be quite spectacular!

This square is located in front of Toronto City Hall and is very pretty. There is the classic Toronto sign, arches, Supreme Court of Justice, and a mirror pool. After taking pictures by the sign, the only other thing to really do is grab some...More

This is an iconic site to visit when you come to Toronto. Within the last couple of years, they installed an enormous Toronto Sign that lights up. Events happen frequently, it host performances sometimes and Blue Jay games on the big screen during the playoffs....More

Toronto City Hall concrete plaza with a waterfall and a multi-coloured TORONTO sign in the background. There is a large underground city-operated parking lot with reasonable pricing if you need a place to put your car.

This is the picture everyone takes in front of the big multicolored TORONTO letters sign. You could grab some lunch from a food truck and eat it here by the fountain in the summer or come here for some outdoor ice skating in the winter!

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in

with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to

No, but you can try to find a parking on the street. It's very easy by metro and it's not expensive.

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.
