Chilver Road south of Niagara Street.
The property surrounding Willistead Manor, appropriately named Willistead Park, contains over 300 trees, including Windsor's only persimmon, a tree native to the southern United States. As well, the park boasts a rare Shumard oak, several Kentucky coffee trees, London Plane, Chestnut, European Elm and Tree of Heaven.
In the secluded shade of Willistead Manor courtyard garden, visitors can experience the elegance of a true English garden in the Paul Martin Gardens. Lustrous shades of green are reflected in a number of different shrubs, including Oregon grape, laurel, euonymus, and shiny leafed mahonia. Hot pink, white and red impatiens add sparkle to this quiet, peaceful area.
In 1976, Windsor City Council designated Willistead Park and Manor as an official heritage property. Today, several annual events, including Art in the Park, attract thousands of people to its grounds.
