Maintenance Is Beginning On Victoria Park, Expected To Take Several Weeks

With the encampment at Victoria Park gone, Peterborough County has announced they have begun planned maintenance in the park.

Barriers have been installed at all entrances to Victoria Park and signs posted at those locations. The park remains closed and compliance with the trespassing notice is required until the rehabilitation plan is completed and the park is re-opened.
