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

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. Parks and Recreation
