Canada's Toronto embraces park circles

Canada's Toronto embraces park circles


How do you stop people from crowding in public parks this summer?

An infamously crowded park in downtown Toronto plans to encircle people with safety - literally.

City staff have painted large rings on the grass at Trinity Bellwoods Park to show how far apart people should be. They recommend that only three people sit in one circle cross-legged, or two people lying down, to maintain social distancing.

The move came after last weekend, when as many as 10,000 people crammed into the park to enjoy one of the first truly glorious days of summer, coronavirus be damned.





Ontario Premier Doug Ford sharply criticised the parkgoers, and urged them all to get tested. Park circles have also been adopted in New York and San Francisco.
