How pedestrian friendly is downtown Toronto?

Downtown Toronto is generally very pedestrian-friendly, even in bad weather, due to an extensive underground walkway system referred to as P.A.T.H. which connects offices, shops, hotels and attractions. One can easily connect between public transportation options (rail, subway, buses, etc.) using the PATH system when the weather discourages one from being outside. Above ground, major streets are flanked by wide sidewalks with wheelchair access ramps. Drivers are generally well behaved for a city of Toronto's size and density, though we witnessed numerous exceptions on the smaller streets. Construction sites are common in the downtown area. So, watch out for temporary street and sidewalk closures. Also, be aware that the Chinatown area can get very crowded with pedestrian traffic during business hours.
