This is a nice public square in the heart of town that is great for photos. There is a large TORONTO sign that is great to take pictures with. Must visit for good photo ops.

If you like to take pictures go to Nathan Phillips Square ad take some pics of the big Toronto sign. It's a skating rink right by it in the winter time. Just one of the many interesting places in Toronto. We went at night.

When we went there it was nothing worth seeing. There was some preparation for Chinese cultural festival, but there was nothing to do or to see. We ended up on the nearby playground.

The sign of Toronto is amazing. It changes colors every few minutes. The weather was amazing which made the night that much better. Fun for little kids and adults. Nice picture for memories.

No, but you can try to find a parking on the street. It's very easy by metro and it's not expensive.

I am not sure that they shut off if they do then it would be in the wee hours. I have been there at 12 ish and lit up. So evening shots are popular.
