Fredericton’s Tannery is known to be the place to be at night, but during the day, it leaves a lot to be desired. With many of the surrounding restaurants offering take-out, you’d think there would be a place where you could sit and eat your lunch. Unfortunately, there isn’t. Much of the space is taken up by parking (in blue). The green areas are flower beds that you can sit on, but due to the narrowness of the driveway, you’re required to stand anytime a minivan or SUV comes in.

The solution is actually quite simple, just remove some of the parking spaces, add some concrete benches and the odd table. Hose off the drunks in the morning and it’ll be ready by lunch.
