Canary District along Front Street, Toronto, 2017[open in full screen]  

 
 

canary district is newly conquered area in previously industrial very polluted land between highways, railway tracks and don river. for PanAm games 2015 residential buildings developed here were used as a participants residences.

in summer 2016 finally public space and parks are finished and turned to public usage.

  these two square–like spaces along front street are now surpassingly pleasant and appreciated by locals. our favourite restaurant "tabule" is also located here.

few large scale public art pieces are making it even more captivating. it is very pedestrian friendly being very close to attractive tourist are of distillery and newly developed large park especially loved by parents with small kids and pets.

  one more thing is very surprising. in just few short months this summer [2017] these become "real public space" and added lot of value to the whole new neighbourhood. just check the photos bellow. am I right?

last row of photos is just added. there was an opportunity to make an above photo. wonderful park, visible in the distance, is perfect for celebrations of any kind.
