Food & Beverage

Beer Garden – all are welcome!

Visit the cascading Beer Garden for a fresh pint of beer, discover the incredible music or late night DJ performances, or catch some shade and relax. Children and pets are welcome!

Tropical South

When visiting TROPICAL SOUTH, we guarantee you’re going to eat well and indulge in more than just food, it’s the culture behind it. Our flavorful food truck serves up Cuban cuisine with a Miami flair. Everything done fresh and on the spot. Made with 100% Canadian local meats and products.

Nabulu Coffee

Nabulu Coffee was founded in 2021 out of a passion for fine coffees and a love for elephants. Nabulu Coffee Trailer offers exceptional specialty coffee that’s been roasted by Brothers’ Coffee Roasters in Oakville, and serves to provide the highest calibre of beverages and customer experience around the GTA.

Lemon Bar

Lemon Bar specializes in handcrafting international-inspired lemonade mocktails. Our artisan mocktails include local and exotic flavours using fresh ingredients. We are passionate about delivering high-quality customer experiences that will leave your taste buds wanting more. “When Life gives you a lemon, think Lemon Bar.”

Tacos 101

Tacos are a national staple in Mexico and a popular street food. They’re quick, fresh and cheap, but never lacking in taste. They’ve taken the same approach at Tacos 101 – real good tacos that won’t break your bank. “Our tacos are what other tacos dream about at night.”

Tropic Love

Specializes in serving fresh fruit smoothies from a tiki-hut style bar. Customers can choose between watermelon, pineapple, and coconut water.  The fruit is blended with ice and served in the fruit shell, hence the phrase “drink from a fruit.”

Site Services


Public washrooms are located North of Hero Burger and additional portable toilets can be found between Hero Burger and the skate rental booth. There are also washrooms available inside City Hall in the basement East side (with changing tables and nursing area). Please be aware that City Hall closes at 6:00 PM on Saturday and Sunday.

Accessible Washrooms

Accessible washrooms are located inside the building behind Hero Burger and inside City Hall on the main floor next to the East elevators.

Water Refill

Grab a free drink of water at our water trucks located throughout Nathan Phillips Square. Please bring a refillable water bottle as no bottled waters are sold at Nathan Phillips Square.


Nathan Phillips Square has few shaded areas and it can get quite hot over the July weekend. Please dress according to the weather, wear comfortable shoes, and drink plenty of fluids. There is a shaded picnic area on the front lawn just North of Queen Street, and air conditioning inside City Hall.
