“A great place to chill out for lunch or grab a coffee and people watch”
Review of City Square

City Square
Reviewed May 4, 2013

This is an ideal place for people watching in the city, it also offers a great selection of food and drinks including Brunetti's for a coffee, and a take away food outlets and some restaurants surrounding the area.

From time to time City Square hosts events such as fashion parades, live shows, kids events, and also at Christmas time they build Santa's village which you can walk around in.

There is a tram stop adjacent to City Square, while it also being connected to both Collins and Swantson street - making it a great place for a sight seeing or shopping rest.

Neat and tidy, but fairly small and hemmed-in. Better the Anglican Cathedral next door on one side, and the Town Hall on the other!
Usually some stalls there to promote events.

Other than the decorations, not much else going on in the square. Somewhat disappointing, atmosphere was much better 20 years ago!

The space has no soul. People use it to pass by. Once it was a liveable space but now a modern planner's idea of space. Where are the people?? They are sitting on the lawn outside the State Library.
