Peterborough Public Square

Peterborough, Ontario

Project Overview

The new Downtown Square in Peterborough will provide a much needed “people place” in the heart of the City - a place where daily activities as well as large scale gatherings can take place on a year round basis.  The Square is planned and designed to activate and re-generate new development in the downtown area.  Phase 1 focused on the selection of a potential site for the Square and resulted in two major opportunities that are not mutually-exclusive – one in the core area and one on the waterfront. Each site takes advantage of key opportunities that have the potential to re-generate these key areas and create the necessary level of activity required to support a vibrant public square.
