Union Station just got a makeover! A huge wooden boardwalk has been installed near the outside steps of Toronto's transport hub, and it's full of art. The Union Station boardwalk has been transformed into a spectacular installation that you can appreciate while walking by. 

Transport yourself to somewhere a little more tropical by visiting this boardwalk in the middle of the city.

The exhibit will be running from August 10 until September 25 and will have a variety of art installations for you to enjoy. 

The new wooden feature is situated at Front Street at the Sir John A. Macdonald Plaza.

According to Toronto Union's website, the boardwalk was built in order to "animate this beautiful public space with art to inspire connection and instill a sense of gratitude."

Toronto artist Javid Jah is the one responsible for the current showcase happening at the site, which is titled "The Universe Within."

According to Jah's Instagram, the piece consists of seven large circular pieces, which represent the seven chakras. 

The circles have each been created with corrugated panels, which are all hanging side by side. The image appears to change as you walk by them.

Javid told Trnto.com that the chakras represent the universe within each of us.

This isn't the only new installation that has popped up in Toronto this summer. 

Stackt's new summer patio will also give you some major beach vibes with their new setup.
