Parks and Forestry

Jackson Park Fountain and Gardens
Parks and Recreation provides residents and visitors with approximately 2,500 acres of green space within the City of Windsor's 209 parks featuring magnificent gardens, sculptures, numerous monuments and fountains, sport fields, play units, and picnic areas. For location information of all parks within Windsor, please visit MappMyCity.

Black Oak Heritage Park and Broadway Park, including the dog park, are closed temporarily as of December 1, 2015, due to construction in the area.

Work on a new bridge plaza will affect Broadway Street, which is the only access road for the parks. During the closure, the nearest dog parks would be Optimist Park and Remington Park.

Please visit for information on other nearby natural areas to explore including Ojibway Park and Tallgrass Prairie Heritage Park.

The 21st Annual Rose and Perennial Sale will once again be at the Lanspeary Park Greenhouse, 1149 Giles Boulevard, on Saturday May 6, 2017, from 8am to 2pm. As in past years, we will be selling hybrid Nell Martin Roses and numerous types of perennials, grass, herbs, shrubs, and a small selection of trees.
