|Yorkdale Subway Station|
The Yorkdale Subway Station is on the Yonge – University – Spadina line of the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC). It was opened in 1978 and serves about 24,000 people a day. As you can guess most of them shoppers to the Yorkdale Shopping Centre.
At the south east corner of the lot, you can get connections to GO transit and Greyhound buses as well as Airport shuttles. There are also 1144 parking spaces for your convenience.
|Yorkdale Shopping Mall|
The Yorkdale Shopping Centre is the 5th largest mall in Canada and has over 260 stores, with over 7,000 parking spaces for shoppers and most of these spaces are full as there are over a half a million people who shop there a week!
There is also a Rainforest Café onsite which has a simulated thunderstorm every 30 minutes and is decorated with waterfalls and other depictions of the elements of the rainforest. Their menu is chicken, pasta, pizzas and seafood and beef. There is also a strange tradition of yelling "Volcano" when somebody orders a volcano ice cream sundae.
Also onsite is the Silver City movie theatre (10 theatres in all)as well a large Indigo Bookstore. In 2005 there was a 60 million dollar expansion put into the old Eaton’s store that once was there made room for 40 more stores. Great time to get into the holiday spirit now and shop till you drop!
Personally, I like the quieter, less busy malls, but in Toronto there are enough choices to get out there.
