crosswalks-2

As reported by the CBC, Saskatoon Saskatchewan may be a cold place in winter, but its urban design department of City Hall is warming up the spring and summer crosswalks of the downtown area. That includes a walk across paved paradise Joni Mitchell style with guitars painted in a crosswalk, and inserting an ice cream cone design on a concrete slab pedestrian intersection.

The work is supervised by Saskatoon’s Urban Design Department and is funded by parking meter revenue. Next up? A set of dinosaur tracks leading the way.

Paint (latex works well) is a cheap and quick way to brighten up a crosswalk in any city.  I wish more municipalities were as playful, making walking fun for kids of all ages.

  1. Glad to see that cities are starting to embrace some of the genius that Roadsworth originally brought to Montreal
