A cool and unusual building, the very heart of Toronto. There's a reflection pool in front of it, and it becomes an outdoor skating ring in winter. Almost every weekend in summertime there's some kind of event in the plaza in front of the New City Hall.

Farmers market in summer. Food trucks. Close to historical bldgs and Eaton Centre. Great central spot to explore from. Go west along Quern or King St; South on Yonge, York or University Avenues, lots of options. Can walk up to Bloor St, down to Lake Ontario, etc.

This is a great spot. Almost timeless design. A large plaza. And an airy feel in the middle of an increasingly claustrophobic city, it's worth a visit. In the winter, bring your skates and you can join the locals as they enjoy the view.

A place that you can meet some friends, ride your skate on winter or take nice photos on summer. It doesn't matter because the New City Hall is a perfect place to visit by any time.

The new Toronto City Hall is starting to show it's age. The thing I like best is the new light up Toronto sign and I saw many people posing for pictures in front of it. During the winter the pond in the square becomes a giant skating rink and many people enjoy skating in the cold outdoors. There are a... More

Usually we visit in the spring, summer or fall but also during the holiday...skating, the lights/decorations and people watching. Our city hall presents itself as world class. It is indeed. One any day you can see our Mayor and councillors on the move. Stop and talk to them.

A nice place to go to as a tourist. It's nicer at night when the lights are on and in the winter the water freezes over and is used as an ice rink.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
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 flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
