Harper Park

Harper Park and its adjacent major open space lands contain a diversity of habitat types and are therefore the most ecologically significant lands within Peterborough, with high biodiversity and a high percentage of native plant species (78%). Harper Park’s size (60 hectares) provides habitat for area-sensitive birds and mammals not normally found within city limits such as Sharp-Shinned Hawk, Great Horned Owl, Snowshoe Hare and Woodland Jumping Mouse.
