Pocket parks are popping up all over town.

TORONTO has discovered ‘pocket parks’.  Traffic islands and unused vacant wedges are being planted and – best of all – maintained.  PHOTOS – maple trees on a traffic island, Richmond Street East & Jarvis; Glenn Gould Place, a park-within-a-park, King Street West at John; an autumn garden, University Avenue & Front; Dundee Place, Richmond at Yonge Street; under the roundabout Gardiner Expressway exit at Y-B-Y (Yonge/Bay/York).  There are countless others.
