    There are many great summer patios in Kingston.However the waterfront does leave a lot to be desired. The Timepiece Sculpture should be removed and an art cafe with an outdoor patio /dance floor put in it,s place. This area should be all lit up and with it,s proximity to Queens would be busy year round.

      I'm somewhat partial to the Time sculpture. Like it or not, large-scale public art such as this is lacking in Kingston, so I would hate to take it away. There's a new patio of sorts opening at the Bader Centre. Not necessarily the same vibe, but it will definitely boast unique views of our waterfront.
