This Pavilion is located in Ashburnham Memorial Park is located beside the Peterborough Museum and Archives. The Pavilion includes 15 large picnic tables and hydro. An accessible portable washroom is available for use at all times and when the Museum is closed. The Museum hours for weekends are 12 pm to 5 pm.


This site is excellent for weddings and special events and has a beautiful background for pictures. If the user would like to use a higher end portable washroom, the Recreation Division will make the arrangements and the cost will be added to the rental fee. Users may bring in their own chairs, tables and decorations for their event, as long as the site is restored to its original state with the picnic tables back inside the Pavilion. Any rehearsals for weddings must be booked as well.


All events require Special Event Insurance, which the Recreation Division can provide at a reasonable cost. For any group that is having a barbecue, they are required to bring a small fire extinguisher or they can rent one from the Recreation Division.

This Heritage Pavilion has a delightful location close to the famous Peterborough Lift Locks and Parks Canada Visitor Centre.
