Churchill Square is a shopping area in St. John's, Newfoundland, located on Elizabeth Avenue near Memorial University of Newfoundland.[1] "The Square", as it is often referred to, contains two parallel rows of shops on each side of a parking lot.[2] The eastern row is much more uniform, and contains apartments on the upper levels.[3]

A larger building between the two rows, Terrace on the Square, contains a clock tower and a small shopping mall with several more shops, as well as business offices on the top levels.[4]

Facing the square, across Elizabeth Avenue, is a bust of Winston Churchill.[5] The bust was sculpted by Dr. Elizabeth Bradford Holbrook.
