Together it all feels like Montreal or New York, or Barcelona, of a time when people comfortably communed in public space, not feeling awkward about it.

Thanks for a memorable photo, davidcappi.
I concur. Well said!

Wow I didn't even notice the couple when I shared the photo!

I think it'll be a really nice space in a few years when the plantings establish and fill in. The new trees they've planted are definitely more interesting species than what was there before, they're just super tiny right now. The canopy they'll form is very different but exciting. I was skeptical about the design of the benches at first, however upon sitting on one by the fountain, I did find the configuration felt way more "communal" than before... It's hard to explain.

>>Broken record warning<<

Grass - It just looks so out of place. A missed opportunity for a beautiful tile/stone pattern.

Flag poles - Are they really stumpy-looking or is it an illusion?
