Chicago turned its waterfront airport into a park, once Toronto does the same and bridges the island to the main promenade we can get on Chicago's level.I've always felt somewhat jealous of Chicago's central, huge and formal park by the lake. But I daresay Toronto has stepped up to that level, when the waterfront is looked at entire. The series of boardwalks, promenades and moderate parks being formed at the city's edge (anchored by Harbourfront Centre), Sunnyside, The Toronto Islands, Tommy Thompson Park/Leslie Spit, and now The Portlands through Cherry Beach. It's a full green necklace around the harbour. I'm slow to praise Toronto, but in this case, I think we're doing extremely well with these projects altogether.
