Open Streets Toronto

Rode my bike around this morning - wonderful to have the streets dedicated to pedestrians and bikes, even if briefly - from 8 a.m. to noon today, Bloor St. from Parliament to Spadina, Yonge from Queen to Bloor. Yay.
This is the corner of Bloor and Yonge.
The ROM.
Kids playing drums outside the Royal Conservatory of Music. Autoshare was giving out chalk for people to draw on the streets, and people were playing hopscotch. In typical Toronto fashion, there was a timid reluctance to really take advantage of the event, but hopefully if it happens again next year, there'll be more involvement. Holt Renfew was giving out free coffee - that's a start. What about choirs, bands, theatre groups? Thank you to the hoards of young volunteers at every corner.

More open streets, please.
