Lanspeary Park Redevelopment

Thank you for your input!

The City of Windsor is grateful for the community involvement as we continue the process to finalize a site plan for the redevelopment of 104-year-old Lanspeary Park and make it more welcoming to all of the city’s residents.

We are reviewing the data collected from the recent public survey for improvements to Lanspeary Park.

After reviewing the input gathered from two public surveys in April and September 2022, the Parks Development team is finalizing the design for Lanspeary Park. You can still review this series of informative slides that introduced the concept plan shown below.
