Prairie Crocuses! I like it. Looks like something you'd expect to see in Copenhagen or Amsterdam.

^Seems the site is down or the link doesn't work. Nevermind I see it. It's a late April Fools joke right?

In this case, commenters are bang on: this will be atrocious, unsightly and in fact will look like it is full of dollar store fake flowers.

Depending on the height, and girth, of the flowers, I bet you wouldn't even notice it.

Preface to post:

Animal advocate/lover. Involvement :High

Someone mentioned dog parks and off-leash areas for our lovely 4 footed friends in another thread?

Reminder:

Quote:
A second, 0.2-hectare dog park that Brian Bowman promised to create while running for mayor in 2014 is slated to take shape at The Forks or in downtown Winnipeg in 2016, Henry said.
>> http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/manito...king-1.3448453



Pledge: 10. Put an off-leash dog park downtown


Quote:
On Sept. 12, Bowman said he planned to create a fenced, off-leash dog park in downtown Winnipeg. The measure was part of his plan to create a stronger downtown, and it also included a collaboration with CentreVenture and the Downtown BIZ to “mandate to attract” a major grocery store to the downtown area within the next two years
>> http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/manito...rail-1.2810954

I'm still on the fence about an off-leash park at the Forks?

Thanks Cyro

Looks nice! Is that true colour or filtered image? Looks filtered. Although most images I've seen look that way. So maybe it's just the darker colours.
