Ukrainian Holodomor Monument and Fountainebleau Splash Pad Ready but Waiting
The City of Windsor wants to reassure residents that the return of the Ukrainian monument to Jackson Park and the opening of a new splash pad in Fountainebleau Park are coming but have been temporarily delayed.
Both projects are ready for the final touches, which require the use of a crane; however, given the current labour disruption with crane operators, the projects are on hold.
The Ukrainian Holodomor Monument was first erected in Jackson Park approximately 17 years ago and was showing its age with cracks and falling granite. It was dismantled for repair, but the restoration of the pieces is now complete.
Fontainebleau Park has been undergoing redevelopment over the past few years, beginning with a new asphalt walking trail and new accessible play equipment. The $400,000 splash pad is the next exciting addition.
Residents looking for a splash pad in the meantime can find them all on the City’s splash pad page. The City of Windsor splash pads are open today!
