Joseph L. Reaume
1863-1930

Reaume Park is named after Joseph L. Reaume, a generous businessman
who donated this land to the community. Reaume’s family was one of the
first to settle this area of Essex County. In the late 1920s “Jovial Joe,”
as he became known, operated the McColl-Frontenac Gas Company,
a small gas station and refreshment stand on the north side of
Riverside Drive at Pillette Road. In 1931 Reaume bequeathed some
4.7 acres of his property to the former Town of East Windsor for a park
so the beauty of the waterfront could be enjoyed by all. The seven-acre
Coventry Gardens, named in honour of Windsor’s twin city of Coventry
England, was added to the original Reaume Park in 1975.​
