Albert Campbell Square is a landscaped civic square in Toronto's eastern district of Scarborough at the Scarborough Civic Centre. It is named for the former politician, Metro Chairman, and first mayor of Scarborough Albert Campbell.

Mostly a concrete square surrounded by some trees and landscaping, the square features a small stage and a waterfall that cascades down to a reflecting pool. The pool is used as a skating rink in winter and a wading pool during the summer. A medal bell tower is located next to the rink/pool.

A number of events are held in the square, mostly in the summer months, including a farmer's market from mid-June to mid-October.[1]
