The initiative saw Bloor Street shut down to regular traffic between Spadina Avenue and Parliament Street, along with Yonge Street between Bloor and Queen streets, for four hours on Sunday.
"There's lots and lots of people out, people of all ages — kids, families, everybody out just enjoying the street,” said Emily Munroe, the co-chair of Open Streets TO, in a telephone interview with CBC News.
"A lot of people walking, a lot of people biking, running, roller-skating, all sorts of things. We're really, really happy with how it's gone."
The same event will take place two Sundays from now, on Aug. 31, also from 8 a.m. to noon.
