Tonight I decided it was too nice to stay in, so I headed down to the public square in Uptown Waterloo. I ended up just sitting and enjoying the evening there for three hours. There were hundreds of people passing through and a dozen seated most of the time. There were several skateboarders and "kids" hanging out. Families, and individual teens to elderly people, they all at times used the seating. I ran in to four people I know but haven't seen in a long time too, plus, UrbanWaterloo.
It was a great experience to see what a huge improvement this is over the once sacred parking lot. It was a vibrant, entertaining place to hang out. I only wish I had my Kindle to do a little reading.
I am glad that change was made to Uptown. If it hadn't, I may have sat in my air conditioned office staring at a screen all night instead being out enjoying the summer.
