Mitchell Park Offers Free Drop-In Summer Program

The City of Windsor's Recreation Department, in proud collaboration with the Downtown Windsor Community Collaborative (DWCC), is excited to offer a free drop-in summer program at Mitchell Park. Committed to fostering community involvement, collaboration, and prosperity, the DWCC is eager to assist City Council with their goal to enhance park safety and engage children in enriching recreation activities.

Running all summer long until September 1, 2023, Monday to Sunday from 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., the Mitchell Park Program offers an action-packed schedule of sports, recreation, active games, passive games, arts, crafts, and more! There's something for every child to explore and enjoy. A collaborative staffing model between the City and DWCC ensures the delivery of quality recreation programming.

City Councillor Renaldo Agostino asked a Council question to bring this program to life. “Thank you to all the City Councillors who unanimously voted in favour of this program,” said Councillor Agostino. “I hope we can have one in each ward next year.”

Jen Knights, Executive Director of Recreation and Culture, notes, “Our Recreation team is very pleased with the success to date of this innovative and collaborative initiative. Placemaking and community-building that incorporate wellness, arts and active living are an integral part of our team culture and goals, and we look forward to seeing the program continue to grow as the summer progresses.”

Participants are required to pre-register by creating an account and registering for the “Mitchell Park Program” at either or by calling our Centralized Registration and Booking Centre at 519-255-1161.
