Offering splendid sights of the adjoining Peterborough marina, the Del Crary Park is a serene haven. Zoning out the loud sounds and city chaos, this park offers the much needed peace and respite to one and all. The endless stretches of green lawns and steadily flowing water stream is a relaxing site. This otherwise tranquil park is abuzz with activities during the events; it is home to the Little Lake Musicfest concert series. Apart from that, it also hosts concerts, local festivals and community events like Victoria Day Fireworks and Multicultural Day.
Built in 1830, George Street United Church stands tall with an ongoing perseverance of serving the community and showing them the divine path to God. With the same objective, the church conducts community events, prayer mass, choir services and other religious meetings. Check website for more information about the church.
Built in 1904, the Peterborough Lift Lock stands at 19.8 meters (65 feet) and was considered to be the tallest during one point in history. A visitor center is located near the lock which enables visitors to ride on a boat to the lock and also provides history of its construction. The lock was marked as a National Historic Site of Canada in 1979 and has also been designated as a Historic Mechanical Engineering Landmark in 1987.
