Mill Street Park

Although Mill Street Park was established in 1926, it did not receive very much attention from anyone – residents, tourists or City Hall – until 1991, when it was revamped through the Provincial P.R.I.D.E. program. A team of nearly 100 men and women, working with the Parks and Recreation Department, completed a wide assortment of improvements to the area during the summer of 1991. At Mill Street Park a 60‑foot windmill was built complementing the area's revitalization. The windmill is a re‑creation of the wind‑powered gristmill that once stood on the shores of the Detroit River and draws tourists to explore the heritage of Sandwich Towne. A bike path that connects Mill Street Park to McKee and Brock Parks serves the community as part of the Windsor Trail.
