Springer Market Square

About Springer Market Square

Downtown Kingston’s central hub, Springer Market Square has been a place for vendors to sell their wares for more than 200 years. The open space at King Street and Brock Street serves as an outdoor movie theatre on summer evenings and a skating rink in the winter with Kingston City Hall as a backdrop. Brick roads add to the period feel.

Guillermo del Toro’s crew dressed up the square as turn-of-the-20th-century Buffalo in Crimson Peak (2015), and it also stood in for a Russian city in a 2013 episode of The CW’s Nikita and 1890s New Orleans in Vendetta (1999).
