This is what it looks like along Toronto's waterfront right now

We're already a week into spring, but you may not have noticed with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic that's turned Toronto's most popular destinations for a sunny day walk into empty grounds.

That being said, Toronto's scenic Harbourfront, which is usually bustling with cyclists, runners, and pedestrians taking in the vistas of Lake Ontario, is still relatively busy. 

Amidst calls for social distancing, people are still taking to the Martin Goodman Trail and Waterfront Trail along the water to remedy being cooped up in their homes.

It's not quite warm enough to sprawl out on beach chairs just yet, so the sandy patches of HTO Park are still generally unfrequented.
