There is a little pick up hockey rink in Dixon Park, in a part of town known as the Teacher’s College District or the North End.

The park is just north of the Peterborough Normal School / Teachers College which is the largest surviving example of turn-of-the-century Beaux Arts architecture in the city. More information about the building’s history can be found here »


Here is a local band named after the park with some nice black and white footage of Jackson Park and other areas around Peterborough. Their bio states that “Dixon Park is the name previously given to the area now known as Jackson Park in Peterborough.”
