Parks and Recreation Master Plan Public Meetings
Windsor Residents are invited to share thoughts and information on the future of Parks in the city. A new Parks & Recreation Master Plan is being created, and input from Residents is vital to the plan’s success. Public Meetings were held in each Ward throughout the fall and winter
, and Residents were encouraged to attend any or all meetings. City Staff provided displays, plans and charts at each meeting.
The meetings are now complete, however if you were unable to attend
one of the Ward Meetings, please have a look at the Parks Master Plan Presentation Boards
. You may also wish to click the survey link for your ward in the list below

an interlocking network of biking and walking trails, currently extends along the Detroit River and links many neighbourhoods. Our hope is that the Windsor Trail will eventually encircle the entire city.
