Peterborough's First Adult Outdoor Gym Begins Construction At Beavermead Park In May

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.

PtboPics: National Canoe Day At Beavermead Park

Lots of local folks gathered at Beavermead Park today to celebrate National Canoe Day. With children's activities, continuous paddling opportunities, a BBQ, displays from the Trent Severn Antique & Classic Boat Association and musical entertainment, there was something for everyone. I was able to participate in the family paddle and enjoyed the calmness of the water while learning about the Canadian Canoe Museum and its history from our guide Barry.  —PtboCanada's Julie Morris
