Fred Thomas Park

400 Wyandotte Street East

Many area residents still refer to Fred Thomas Park as Glengarry Court, a name selected in 1959 to honour Windsor's sizeable Scottish‑Canadian population. In particular, S.S. Macdonnell, first mayor of both the Village and Town of Windsor, was able to trace his ancestral roots back to the rural town of Glengarry, Scotland.

The land was part of a redevelopment area that was cleared of homes and buildings in the 1960s. In 1976, a joint effort by the Department of Parks and Recreation and the Downtown Neighbourhood Improvement Program established the Glengarry Court Community Centre. In 1989, the centre was relocated to the Thompson Towers building.

In 1981, Glengarry Court Park was renamed in honour of the late Fred Thomas, a long-time Windsor resident who starred on the Patterson Collegiate and Assumption College basketball teams in the late 1940s and early 1950s.

The park underwent improvements in 2023, including a new farm-themed accessible playground and splash pad.
