Peterborough's Open Streets event returns to George Street Saturday, July 21st, 2018 from 10am-3pm!

Peterborough Pulse invites the whole city to walk, bike, dance, play and socialize in spaces typically used by cars. For one summer day, George Street transforms into a vibrant car-free corridor filled with families pushing strollers, cyclists and roller-skaters, Karate and Zumba, art and music, and more.

The Pulse Play Guide project was created with the intention to extend the Peterborough Pulse momentum beyond a single day event. Healthy Kids Community Challenge has funded the creation of the Play Guide to support healthy play in the Peterborough community. The goal of the Play Guide is to encourage kids to “power off and play” throughout the summer by offering free recreation experiences.
