Community and Special Events

  • The Recreation and Culture Department is a key facilitator for community events, particularly in the areas of outdoor festivals, seasonal sports, and recreational opportunities for special populations. Skilled professionals work with the community to develop and plan for self-sustaining events to enrich our community calendar.

Cultural Affairs 

  • Culture joined Recreation in the spring of 2010 – a move that provides more integrated services to residents. Museum Windsor​ is included in this organizational realignment. The inclusion of culture within the recreation network of community centres, pools and arenas provides expanded communication opportunities in neighbourhoods.


The Parks and Recreation User Fee Policy outlines a fair and equitable pricing policy for recreation programs within the City.
