Peterborough Parkway Over Park Planned
Much has been written about the 'devastating' and 'permanent' impact on Jackson Park in Peterborough if the proposed Parkway route over Jackson Park is allowed to go ahead. This is a representation of what that might look like from the air:
That tiny grey line connecting Medical Drive to Fairbairn is an approximation of the proposed route.
