Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Metro Hall (Toronto)

Family Tested

You are here!

I suggest you enter Metro Hall from its entrance on King (at the southeast corner of King and John). See how the sparkling metal of the modern “ruins” mixes with the floor to ceiling glass walls. It feels like a futuristic cathedral, doesn’t it? Don’t miss the big shiny arrow, which, in my mind, looks like a giant “You are here” mark on a map. (Good photo op, here!) I don’t think the rest of Metro Hall bears any interest for children but it is fun to explore the surrounding square. David Pecaut Square includes a lovely fountain. As you stroll around, try to locate the “labyrinth” of etched glass screens serving as windbreak.
