TriNoma (Triangle North of Manila) is a large shopping mall in Quezon City, Philippines, owned by property development firm Ayala Land Inc. Opened in 2007, the mall is located on the side of Epifanio de los Santos Avenue, near the North Avenue MRT Station in Quezon City, giving significant market competition to the nearby SM City North EDSA as one of the largest malls in Metro Manila.

It is directly connected to the MRT's North Avenue station as the mall itself sits atop the MRT Depot. It will be almost connected to the Yellow Line's proposed North Avenue LRT Station. A pedestrian overpass has also been constructed to connect TriNoma with SM City North EDSA.
The mall is composed of four major levels with two minor ones on the ground and on grade. The mall is characterized by alfresco areas punctuated with water features and landscaping. These water features flow into pools at the TriNoma Park, an oasis that sits atop the mall.
The TriNoma Park is a two-level park spanning a total of one hectare. It is home to an array of restaurants offering varied cuisines. The Park also houses a stage, surrounded by pools of water, for performances and shows. The TriNoma Park is linked to the mall's 3rd level.
