Harbourfront Centre information
The 4-hectare not-for-profit Harbourfront Centre exists to educate and entertain Toronto's diverse community, through a kaleidoscope of performamces and events held in its numerous stages and halls. Many are kid-focused, some are free. There's also a lakeside ice-skating rink where you can slice up the winter ice. Don't miss the free galleries, including the Photo Passage and the functioning Craft Studio .
Delicately strung along the western harborfront, the Toronto Music Garden was designed in collaboration with cellist Yo-Yo Ma. It expresses Bach's Suite No 1 for Unaccompanied Cello through landscape, with an arc-shaped grove of conifers, a swirling path through a wildflower meadow and a grass-stepped amphitheater where free concerts are held.
Canada Square and Ontario Square , two vast new public spaces, opened in June 2013. At the time of writing construction works continued to improve access to the site and provide additional parking. Check the home page for the latest details.
