Lets Talk Off-Road Biking in City Parks
The City of Windsor is home to an astonishing 209 parks of varying sizes and with varying uses. In a number of parks, one of those uses is off-road biking, and we want to hear what you think about it.
Two open houses are planned, and residents are invited to come out and share their ideas with the staff that will be on hand to discuss options and suggestions, and collect comments. Whether you're part of a competitive group or simply an individual who likes to ride, we welcome your input.
The information will be compiled and used to help make future decisions surrounding off-road biking in our parks.
Open House #1 was held on Thursday, January 25, 2018 at the WFCU Centre on McHugh Street.
Open House #2 was held on Thursday, February 8, 2018 at Roseland Golf and Curling Club on Kennedy Drive in South Windsor.

The City of Winsor is working with the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) to develop detailed plans for a single track and engineered pump track at both Malden Park and Little River Corridor Park.
IMBA Trails Specialist and Program Coordinator Justin Truelove attended an open house in Windsor on April 30, 2019 to gather community input an ideas as he finalizes these plans. At that meeting, Mr. Truelove presented the following concept maps to give the attendees an idea as to where the tracks could be placed. These plans are not finalized and are only presented as visuals to assist with the community open house discussions:
