Parks and Recreation provides residents and visitors with over 2,800 acres of green space in 215 parks featuring magnificent gardens, over 35 sculptures, numerous monuments and fountains, sport fields, play units, and picnic areas. We aim to beautify our community by planting formal gardens, boulevards and the riverfront with thousands of flowers, plants, and shrubs.

Parks & Play  - Community Information Sessions

Our parks. Our playgrounds. Our city

Parks and Facilities in the City of Windsor is designing and constructing new spaces for our children to exercise, play, imagine.  While continually working to redesign, upgrade and renew our parks as places for people to relax and refresh, Parks will install five new accessible themed playgrounds in five different parks across the city this year.

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 to give your input on the new master plan.
 
The following Parks & Rec Master Plan Open Houses were held in 2013-2014:
 

Notifications were made through media advisories, social media posts, the Windsor Star prior to each meeting.

Trails

The Windsor Trail 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.

Parks and Natural Areas

Parks and Recreation is also the guardian of many different naturalized parks including Ojibway Prairie Complex.

Urban Forest

Parks and Recreation is responsible for the care and maintenance of the urban forest with 60,000 trees on streets and an additional 35,000 trees in parks and public spaces. Our mission is to provide safe and clean parks and play spaces for people living in and visiting our community.
