Scarborough City Centre is a small city centre in Scarborough, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, one of the six municipalities amalgamated into the City of Toronto in 1998. It is roughly bounded by Kennedy Road to the west, Markham Road to the east, Ellesmere Road to the south, Highway 401 running along the centre, and Sheppard Avenue to the North. At its core is the Scarborough Town Centre, a shopping mall with approximately 1,700,000 square feet (158,000 m2) of space, occupied by three anchor retailers, a cineplex and 200 small outlets over two floors. This mall is the central focus of the city centre, and is connected to a station of the Scarborough RT (SRT) system, which also interfaces with the bus system. Two other SRT stations, Midland and McCowan, also exist within the bounds of the city centre. To the south of the mall is Scarborough Civic Centre, which was the city hall for Scarborough before amalgamation. Standing between the mall and the civic centre is Albert Campbell Square, a public space named after a former reeve of Scarborough.

Surrounding these central buildings are an assortment of condominium towers, many of them very recent additions to the skyline. The major office towers in the area are those at Consilium Place, which was completed in 1991. In a band around the southern side of the city centre are densely forested parklands, between Borough Drive and Ellesmere Road. Outside the immediate city centre is mostly industrial parks and low-density housing.
