Yonge-dundas Square, Toronto Reviews

  • What a great hub of energy. It's like a supernova burst of energy. This square is an open theatre with music bands playing most days and nights in the summer. There are lots of attractions around and huge screens surrounding the square making it a very pleasant sight day or night. There is never a shortage of buskers and aspiring artists trying to express their form of art. The place is popular in the summer with the water jets fountain. There is minimal seating around but some can be found.

  • Great place to be, but the city needs to do more in that area when it comes to tourist attraction. I've been in the area over the long weekend and couldn't help to notice some unappealing series of event. Its a nice place to visit during cultural events and concerts, but other than that I personally will not recommend it unless you're visiting the Eating Centre

  • One of the busiest hubs in Toronto besides Union Station. It seems to be modelled after New York City's, Time Square. Lots of shipping, concerts, people watching and restaurants. Situated on the North-East corner of Toronto's famed Eaton Centre and an easy place to reach by the Toronto Transit System by street car or through Toronto's subway network.

  • It's a good place to walk and shop. Plus a very good mall is located in it too. The only drawback is that make sure you don't go there on weekends. It's super crowded. Avoid going on the weekend the best that you can. But overall a very wonderful place. With shops, mall, restaurants and movie theater.

  • In the heart of downtown. Steps from the Eaton centre. There are plenty of restaurants, and shops nearby. On occasions the square is used for various festivals including music and food. I've checked out several music festivals here, a lot of fun and most are totally free. Check out the website to see what is happening at the square and the details. It's family friendly and has easy access to the subway system at Dundas station.
