Curious street feature

On one of my walks about town (doing more of that for exercise these days) I came across something that has me scratching my head:

What the heck is it for? It is situated on the east side of Ralph St. in the Glebe, just past Holmwood Ave. at the edge of Brown's Inlet. As you can see, there are no signs indicating its use as a waiting area of some kind or whatever.

It's very fresh and new-looking, and was obviously purposely done and with a specific shape. And it sits there all by its lonesome.

It's too small to be much of a bus stop (if this was a bus route), and it's too narrow for just about anything related to a vehicle that might park alongside.

At least there's a rather nice view looking over top of it:

Bicycle idling zone?

Given that the curb on the inside of it is on top of the mini-sidewalk, I could only hypothesize that it's a reeeeally small retaining wall for the mound behind it.
