2016/2017 Winter Parking Restrictions on City Streets


To assist snow-clearing operations, parking restrictions are now in effect in the City of Peterborough.  To avoid tickets and/or your vehicle being towed, observe the following:

From December 1- April 1, parking is prohibited on all City streets from 2:00 a.m. – 6:00 a.m.  

  • This allows better snow clearing of city streets and at a lower cost because equipment will not have to return to clear areas where vehicles were parked.  The fine for a violation is $25. 

During a snowstorm, when snow-clearing operations are underway, no stopping of a vehicle is permitted on any city street.  

  • Snow-clearing operations typically take place between midnight and 8 a.m.  The fine is $80 for this violation and your vehicle will be towed.  All vehicles north of Parkhill Road will be towed to Milroy Park located at 242 Milroy Drive, with all other vehicles being towed to Morrow Park located at 171 Lansdowne St. W. After 24hrs all unclaimed vehicles will be towed to an impound yard at the owners expense. 

Where can I park off street?


Vehicles need to be off all streets, including streets in the downtown.  Free overnight parking is permitted at all Municipal parking lots, King Street Parkade and Simcoe Parking Garage. Vehicles parked overnight at either parking garage can obtain a gate arm ticket upon entry to the garage to be used for a free transit trip home.   

Can I park on City streets during the day or evening when it is snowing?


Parking is normally permitted throughout the day and evening during snowy weather.  Only in an extreme weather event would a public service announcement be initiated to remove vehicles from city streets during the day or evening.

Remember there is no parking any time of the year on city streets for longer than 3 hours, except where a sign indicates otherwise.

Thank you for your cooperation – you are helping to make city snow clearing more efficient and effective!
