Toronto Eaton Centre - Overview:

The Toronto Eaton Centre - alongside the CN Tower - is Toronto's top tourist draw, covering several city blocks and boasting more than 250 stores in a bright, airy atmosphere in central, downtown Toronto.

At the time of its opening in 1977, the Eaton Centre was cutting edge. Its architecture, featuring vaulted glass ceilings and open, multi-levels influenced shopping mall design across North America. Well-known Canadian artist Michael Snow provided the whimsical flock of geese sculpture that hangs from the ceiling.
