This is what Trinity Bellwoods looks like on its first weekend with social distancing circles

It's the first weekend in Trinity Bellwoods Park where visitors can test out the new social distancing circles at one of Toronto's most popular green spaces, and for all intents and purposes, it's been a hit. 

The white circles, which were painted by City of Toronto staff earlier this week as a pilot project, did their job in keeping groups of people isolated from one another while enjoying the outdoors.
