I can't believe what I'm seeing here! You have taken Yonge and turned it into what it should be - a place where people can enjoy our city.
I looooove the Celebrating yonge project!!!!
Having more pedestrian space and awesome parks will benefit this tourist area
Just had a great lunch at the 'park' on Yonge. Nature on Yonge st what a concept. While I sat there eating my roti from the Caribbean restaurant in front of the park, I met a bunch of people and we debated the value of shutting down traffic on Yonge. The conclusion was that lets face it folks, any self respecting Torontonian would never use Yonge as a North/South route through the city, it is only for posers and tourists when it comes to cars. On the other hand, the businesses have all done better...I know because they were the people I met and discussed this with. Time for our city to grow up and make this permanent. Thanks ING and Bienenstock for setting this up. I never would have found this restaurant, spent my money here or met my neighbors without it. Make it permanent!
Celebration Park looks great! It's a shame it's only here for a month! Build a mini ice rink for winter.
We think that the idea of extended sidewalks is mighty fine. Really great idea for more greenery and it may give Toronto that unique feel other than just having buildings around.
We love the park
Trees, people, animals - Oh that's just the NEW Yonge Street. Love it!
I think that Celebration Park really livens up Yonge St and gives it a much needed aesthetic boost!
The trees and flowers really liven up the street!
I love it, it is a great way to feel like you have green space in the city!
I think that shutting down Yonge St. was a great idea. I work in the area and our neighbours have commented to me that their sales actually went up 30% since Celebrate Yonge started. It's good for business and great for pedestrians.
I like the space and how it correlates with the Native art exhibits at the AGO. This is a great space to talk with people
Luv the look. Please, please, make this an annual xsummer landscape.
The park is beautifulWe need more green space and less cars
Love the green space in such a busy area. Would like to see some more food options and maybe a little taller screening along the road in places.
Celebration Park is the best part of Celebrate Yonge. It's nice to bring some nature in to the city.
Its nice to see that young st look so nice. Hope you will have it next year well miss it when its gone . Thanks
