It’s time to walk, bike, dance and play in the middle of the street with the return of Peterborough Pulse on July 21st.
Peteborough Pulse is a vibrant, playful, and active car-free corridor through the heart of Peterborough. For one summer day, the streets are filled with cyclists and roller-skaters, families pushing strollers, karate and fencing demonstrations, art and music, and more.
"Pulse is the ultimate way to experience our downtown," says Susan Sauvé, Transportation Demand Management Planner with the City of Peterborough. "As a city, we are becoming more walk and bike friendly, and we know that the downtown is where the most demand for walking and cycling is."
Now in its 4th year, Pulse will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. This year’s Pulse route will run along George Street from McDonnel St. to Sherbrooke St. and will include Charlotte St. from George St. to Aylmer St.
“Pulse is an amazing way to see what this community has to offer,” says Terry Guiel, Executive Director of the Downtown Business Improvement Area.
“With more than 100 businesses and community groups involved, you’re going to have the opportunity to try some unique activities as well as see some new local dining and shopping possibilities," adds Guiel.
