Parks and Forestry

Peace Fountain  
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 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.


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
