Safe Semester Kicks Off September 7th

Macdonell and Wyndham streets closed weekly Thursday to Saturday 10 p.m. to 4 a.m.

Guelph’s Safe Semester runs from September 7 to 23 to support a safe and enjoyable environment downtown for businesses, residents and students. With a higher volume of pedestrians downtown in September, closing the streets Thursday through Saturday allows everyone to enjoy Guelph’s downtown nightlife safely. Macdonell Street is closed nightly between the Macdonell parking lot and the West Parkade, and Wyndham Street is closed nightly between Carden Street and Cork Street on:

  • September 7-9
  • September 14-16
  • September 21-23

During the closures, there is no on-street parking allowed in the closure area between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m. Residents and visitors in the area can park in the available parking lots. Any cars parked on closed streets during Safe Semester will be towed at the owner’s expense. Accessible portable washrooms will be set up near Guelph Central Station at the east end of Carden Street.
