Mel Lastman Square, Toronto, Canada, 2008[open in full screen]  

 
 

Mel Lastman was last mayor of the North York, one of the Toronto boroughs before amalgamated in one city couple of years ago. Great ambition to create new "downtown" in the North York resulted with area being build up quite significantly.

  This square is in the hearth of that new city center. Square is little over designed but otherwise with lot of nice features. Greenery, useful urban furniture, even the skating rink during the winter.   It is used during the day by people in surrounding office buildings and in few special occasions, celebrations and public concerts.
