The crosswalk has garnered positive reaction from the community.

“I’m so proud of our city for the message this makes. #LoveisLove🌈,” says Kate Wells on a DBIA Facebook thread regarding the new crosswalk.

”This is awesome ... any little step to make everyone feel welcome in this city will help it grow in a positive way,” adds Martin Boruta in the same thread.

Some commenters mentioned they’d love to see more crosswalks painted in these vibrant colours (there is one other rainbow crosswalk in Peterborough on the campus of Fleming College). Christine Densmore had this to say: “Well don't just color one Crosswalk, color them all in Peterborough! It looks super cute! Happy and bright❤ Creative! 😃”
