Peterborough's largest free recreation program returns Saturday July 15th 2017! 

 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.

Why Create a Car Free Event? 

We want to inspire Peterborough to become the healthiest and happiest city it can be. By opening the streets to people- Pulse promotes healthy communities, active transportation, local business, and neighborhood pride!
