Accessible Playgrounds

Play unit at Little River Acres ParkImagination is a big player in the new accessible play structures in Windsor parks.

Designed with new materials, CSA safety standards, and the latest accessibility features, the play units are colorful, multi-level, and multipurpose centres for creative play.

“The City of Windsor is reviewing all the existing play units to determine which ones are most appropriate for today’s parks,” explains Mike Clement, Manager of Parks Development, for the City of Windsor. “Our long-term plan is to feature themed play units in community/regional parks with designs that complement the location."

Research on park use involves reviewing the demographics in the neighbourhood, as well as the amenities in the park and in the surrounding area. By amalgamating resources in community/regional parks, the City can provide better quality, more attractive play areas. The city will continue to provide amenities geared to the neighbourhood parks such as walking paths, slides, swings, and benches.
