Not sure.

I was in Sarnia Ontario recently to attend a two day First Aid class. The class was held two blocks from the waterfront, so during lunch one day I went for a stroll and came across this sidewalk between a parking lot and the waterfront.

I’m not sure what the city designer/planner and/or engineer had in mind, laying this sidewalk out with two 90 degree turns and a 45 degree turn. It would seem to make more sense (and cost less) ┬áto have a straight sidewalk between waterfront and parking lot.

I cut across the grass, as more than a few people seemed to have done.
