Guestbook Toronto City Hall
Toronto’s city hall is so much more than just a municipal government building. It is a space for the people of Toronto; in addition to housing our city council, it has a daycare, a public library, a green roof, and a public space that is used for festivals and recreation. Named Nathan Phillips Square after a former Toronto mayor, the space hosts an abundance of cultural activity such as winter ice skating, art installations, jazz festivals, dance practices, farmers’ markets, cultural celebration days, and New Year’s parties. A modern behemoth of concrete and glass, it is grand and strong – just like much of our city – and reminds me that I love my city and am proud to call myself a Torontonian.
