WATCH: Open Streets TO launches downtown

Pedestrians ruled the roads on Sunday as part of a pilot project.

Pedestrians ruled the roads on Sunday as the pilot project Open Streets TO took place in the city.

From 8 a.m. until noon, Bloor Street was shut down between Spadina and Parliament along with Yonge Street between Bloor and Queen.

The roads were filled with activities such as yoga, dance class and live entertainment. Their goal was to turn the streets into “paved parks,” which was meant to provide people with a vibrant downtown experience.

Maps were set up, where organizers encouraged attendees to place a sticker outlining where they were from and how they got to the event.

Most were from the downtown core, but some travelled from regions like Halton, Peel and York.

The pilot project will take place Again on August 31st.
