Nice photo. I lived in Midtown Kitchener until very recently, and really enjoyed feeling the walk down King Street change.

The City (with support from the federal government) did a great job on King, and there is a lot of headway being made in other parts of downtown, too. That's not to say that there aren't still a lot of problems downtown, and some pretty regressive stuff (Victoria and Weber Streets are both pretty depressing arteries), too, though.

One interesting thing to note is that Duke Street, on which LRT will run through downtown Kitchener in a few years, and Charles Street, which passes Victoria Park and on which is situated the Lang Tannery, were once a one-way pair. Since their conversion, they are much more pleasant, though still have a long way to go.
