A town square is an open public space commonly found in the heart of a traditional town used for community gatherings.
Seen as though we are an open public PI community, our town square is PI Square.

Mike Zboray Jun 24, 2015 6:13 PM (in response to Mark1)In addition to what has already been mentioned, I always assumed it was a play on the mathematical problem of antiquity, squaring the circle, which involves the construction (using a compass and straightedge) of a square with area equal to that of a circle. This is equivalent to constructing a square with area exactly equal to pi, a "pi square" if you will.Of course it was proven that pi is transcendental, and as a corollary, that squaring the circle is impossible.
