“Clean Times Square”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

If you like New York City's Time Square, you should enjoy this square mainly because they are extremely similar with this square being ever so much cleaner! Hey, I'm not knocking NY-I live there but Canadians sure know how to keep a clean square!

“It's not Time Square but there's usually something happening”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

It's still fairly new but the city are trying to do good things with the space. Very easy to get to with public transit.

“Big Loud Exciting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

If you like Times Square, this is the closest thing you'll get to it in Toronto. It's big, it's loud, it's bright, most nights there's something happening (festivals, free shows, w/e). Lots of people of all types, lots of shopping. Right in the center of Toronto's busiest area (attractions, universities, shopping malls, etc.). If you're prone to headaches and crowds irritate you, stay away. If you love nightlife, Times Square, and the big city experience, this place is more for you.

“Architects 1, People 0”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

It's supposed to be an architectural delight, an exciting urban park. But it's just a concrete plaza with a fountain.

“Toronto's time square”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Toronto's time square. Only this one is cleaner and much safer. Still not much to do. There are seats and some live music during summer. Also some bars and restaurants around the square.
