In June 2017, the City of Peterborough announced the generous support of the Rotary Club of Peterborough-Kawartha and the Rotary Club of Peterborough to bring the first Adult Outdoor Gym to Peterborough.
Located in Beavermead Park adjacent to the volleyball courts and near the children’s playground, it will consist of a variety of exercise machines—including some that are accessible for persons with disabilities.
The project is funded thanks to contributions of $25,000 from each of the two Rotary Clubs, and $40,000 committed by the City of Peterborough.
New World Park Solutions Inc. will begin work on the installation in May.
You will soon be able to search and register for programs online from your computers and mobile devices, thanks to the City of Peterborough.
They are now working together with PerfectMind—makers of innovative membership management, program registration, and facility booking software—to offer a user-friendly platform to connect members of the community with cultural and recreation services.
PerfectMind's unique platform has been used by major city governments throughout North America. PerfectMind improves the customer experience significantly by making it easy to find, reserve, and pay for programs and services using desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones.
Beginning in November, the Peterborough Sport & Wellness Centre (PSWC) was the first City facility offering the new software system. The PSWC features leisure and therapy pools, gymnasium, fitness centre, and a variety of health and fitness programs serving the residents of Peterborough and Fleming College, and will utilize a broad range of PerfectMind features within its membership base.
The balance of recreation, arenas, cultural services, and facilities will become active in the new system throughout December and January 2018.
