This is really cool. Every spring in Montreal these swings are put in place where people can swing, wait for the bus, and make music.

The Quartier Des Spectacles website says:

21 swings, MontrealThe first thing you must know is that 21 BALANÇOIRES (« 21 Swings ») is located on the Promenade des Artistes. This new urban space links the Place des Festivals with Le Parterre, along de Maisonneuve and Président-Kennedy. For a long time, it has run up the middle of a bustling spot that Montrealers wryly think of as the workshop of performances, a busy backstage area.This spring, it steps into the limelight, as rushing traffic has given way to new connections between new spaces that Montrealers can call their own.
