Nathan Phillips Square

Nathan Phillips Square is a plaza located in downtown Toronto. The area is home to City Hall, a giant reflecting pool and most importantly the Toronto sign. A product of the 2015 Pan-Am Games, the sign was supposed to be temporarily located in Nathan Phillips Square. It became so popular with locals and tourist that it is now a prominent fixture. Other reasons to visit include seasonal events such as music festivals, farmers’ markets, and an outdoor skating rink.

 

The main reason tourists flock to Nathan Phillips Square is to take pictures with the iconic Toronto sign. There are many photographic opportunities which include a variety of angles from across the reflecting pool and elevated pathway. In addition, the sign becomes even more attractive at night when glowing a number of vibrant colours.

 

Getting to Nathan Phillips is very easy. Its close proximity to the Eaton Centre and Yonge-Dundas Square means you’ll probably be within a 5-minute walk on multiple occasions during your time spent in Toronto. If you’re farther away, using the subway is the most convenient approach. The closest stations are Osgoode and Queen.
