Now that's a properly designed sidewalk. All the trees, benches, lamp posts, etc. are placed to the side creating a linear buffer between the pedestrians and the cars. It's frustrating seeing how many times they scatter these things all over the place to create an obstacle course on an already narrow sidewalk.
You'd think they could get this simple thing right but it seems to be a rarity in Toronto. This little stretch of public realm is a wonderful surprise. I'll detour here next time I'm in the area.
