New public spaces that are surprising you

What is a newly created public space (under 5 years old) that is surprising you?

What is a surprise?

"Surprise" means it's not what you expected.

For example:

It sucks big time.
It's way better than you thought
Or, it's just drawing a different crowd or vibe than you had anticipated

For me, it's Chicago's rather new but still evolving riverwalk.

I knew it would be popular, but I guess I didn't expect it to be this popular, and so full of.....drunkenness and eye candy. Lots of boats, lots of crowds, and lots of partiers. Sort of makes me jealous that this didn't exist when I was 25. Anyhow, it's likely not turning out as classy as the city had planned, but making lots of money for sure..
