Visiting downtown

Downtown welcomes people with more pedestrian space and more patio/outdoor business space, supporting a safe experience for visitors following public health measures.

The City, in collaboration with Peterborough Downtown Business Improvement Area and Peterborough Public Health, has made some temporary changes to streets and on-street parking to give more space to pedestrians and businesses to help visitors maintain physical distancing when visiting downtown.

Explore our site to see where you can find the expanded pedestrian spaces, how we've grown the area for patios and outdoor business spaces, and what the changes mean for traffic lanes.

There is plenty of on-street parking and parking available in parking lots and garages throughout the central area.
