Time Out says

Toronto got its version of La Rambla with a makeover that opened in 2015 of this principal lakefront boulevard. The number of car lanes was halved to make room for expanded pedestrian and bike lanes. Top Canadian and international landscape architects have added whimsy all along the route with two undulating WaveDecks, HTO Park, Toronto Music Garden and, east of Yonge Street, Sugar Beach, with its oversized pink umbrellas and sexy party vibe, and Sherbourne Common’s water features. Harbourfront Centre is a major cultural hub, hosting concerts, craft workshops and exhibitions, the Power Plant contemporary art gallery and two theatres.
