Maple Leaf Square (and colloquially “Jurassic Park” while the Raptors are playing) is a public square along with a residential, office, retail, entertainment and hotel complex in Toronto, Canada. It is located to the west of the Air Canada Centre in Downtown Toronto in the former Railway Lands. The $500 million development was jointly developed by Cadillac Fairview, Lanterra and Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment (MLSE), who owns the nearby Air Canada Centre. The complex has 1,800,000 square feet (170,000 m2) of usable space covering 2.1 acres (8,500 m2) on one city block.

The name of the square and complex is Maple Leaf Square, after the Toronto Maple Leafs that play in the Air Canada Centre next to the square. The square also has the nickname Jurassic Park, after the 1993 movie Jurassic Park, from which the Toronto Raptors were given their name.
