Open House #2 for Proposed National Urban Park

The City of Windsor and Town of LaSalle, in collaboration with Parks Canada and consultant WSP, on behalf of partners, are holding a second national urban park open house on Tuesday, June 13, 2023, to share information about a proposed national urban park in southwestern Ontario as well as to solicit feedback and suggestions.

The open house will be held at the Town of LaSalle Event Centre, located at 970 Front Road, where all are welcome between 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.

City and Town staff and Parks Canada officials will be on hand to answer questions and share information boards outlining the study area of the proposed park, the objectives of the national urban parks program, the park designation process, and summaries of feedback received from previous engagement session. A feedback form will also be available for public input on the proposed park.

What is a National Urban Park?

Parks Canada launched a new program in 2021 to create a network of national urban parks across Canada in order to support access to nature in urban centres. National urban parks will contribute to conservation of nature in urban areas and biodiversity goals, provide access to nature for people living in major urban centres, and advance reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples.
