Toronto Neighborhoods • Exhibition Place
Exhibition Place is mixed-use property on the Toronto shore of Lake Ontario, a few kilometers west of the central business district. The 197–acre area features expo, trade, and banquet centers, theater and music buildings, parkland, sports facilities, and a number of civic, provincial, and national historic sites. From mid-August through Labour Day each year, the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE), from whose name Exhibition Place is derived, is held on the grounds. During the CNE, Exhibition Place encompasses 260 acres (1.1 km²), expanding to include nearby parks and parking lots. The CNE features games and a midway, among a host of attractions. The fair is one of the largest and most successful of its kind in North America, and an important part of the culture of Toronto, the province, and the nation itself. The grounds have seen a mix of protection for heritage buildings along with new development.
