Yonge-dundas Square, Toronto Reviews

  • There's often a lot going on here so check it out if your nearby. This is very small triangular space about the total square footage of 2-3 house lots with a decent sized stage. No green, all concrete and flashing electronic signs but often packed with people eating different ethnic foods and watching and listening to live entertainment. Be prepared to get husseled many times. This is Toronto, enjoy!

  • Can’t believe how much this area has changed and so much for the better. There is always lots going on and you will meet some of the most diverse and eclectic group of people in this city. It’s probably the Downtown of Toronto as it’s close to the shops, subway, Eaton Centre, the Bay, Nordstrom etc, etc... I’ve bumped into “Elvis” and “Spider-Man “ in this location. There is a great space that is host to numerous events. If visiting Toronto, it’s a must-see area to go. It is also home to a movie cinema.

  • Overcrowded and filled with homeless people. The location is one of the most popular tourist areas in Toronto. Located on the most busiest street. Right beside the Eaton Center (Mall). Many buskers always on the street ready to entertain. Very lit up at night with many posters and lights and stores.

  • It's unfair to call it Canada's times square. But yeah somewhat that's the category. The most lively square you'll see in Toronto. Best place for any kinda events - concerts, Canada day celebrations etc. This place is full of people and road side activities. Tourists love this place. Very close to Eaton centre and a walk to CN tower is a must for tourists.

  • #1 place to be for festivals, concerts, shows and events. Public use space for everything from summer films to Canada Day celebrations. Across the street from the Toronto Eaton Centre and 10 Dundas. Popular with tourists and locals alike. Nice outdoor stage and access to Dundas ttc station.
