The central hub of downtown, Yonge-Dundas Square is located directly across from the Eaton Centre and aims to attract both tourists and residents alike to celebrate Toronto. The square hosts community celebrations, theatrical events, promotions, and concerts
Opened in 2002 theYonge-Dundas Square was created to bring more life and energy to the city. The unique urban space boasts impressive granite surfaces, a raised stage, a half-price theatre ticket booth, and 22 spectacular computer-programmed fountains that emerge from the surface of the square. The square accommodates events, displays or concerts of various sizes, including very large events by closing part of Yonge Street.
When not used for special events, the square becomes an urban plaza, an open space for the public to enjoy. Weather-permitting, the fountains will be operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Buskers entertain on the square while visitors enjoy the cafe style seating.
