Metropolis at Metrotown has transformed into a must-visit summer destination with interactive outdoor and indoor spaces, inspiring art installations, a fun limited-time-only MET Passport Challenge, educational workshops, memorable photo opportunities, delectable food and beverage, and more.

Soak up the sun at the new outdoor South Plaza

The South Plaza has been transformed into a lively and inspiring summer oasis, featuring inspiring art installations, creative seating, and culinary experiences. Enjoy sweet and savoury treats and refreshing beverages while you relax in the sunshine.

Marvel at inspiring art installations

Be inspired by “Hymn to the Big Wheel” by acclaimed British artist Liz West, an immersive sculptural work exploring the illusion and physicality of colour and natural light in space. And step onto the new hand-painted floor mural by Trevor Wheatley and Cosmo Dean, designed to offer a new sense of welcome to the outdoor space.

Stay and play at indoor “parks”

Whether you’re taking a break from shopping or seeking extra summer fun, gather your friends and family at the various indoor “mini parks” throughout the shopping centre. Each park features vibrant decor, memorable photo opportunities, and creative seating perfect for afternoon picnics indoors.
