Windsor is located on the banks of the Detroit
River and features over six kilometres of continuous shoreline parks linking the University
of Windsor, downtown Windsor and the old town of Walkerville. The riverfront parks include
over forty large scale internationally recognized sculptures in our gallery without walls, the
Windsor Sculpture Park. We also enjoy special event venues, historic monuments, walking
and cycling trails and magnificent fountains within meters of the waterfront. The City of Windsor is always designing and
constructing new spaces for our children to exercise, play, and imagine. The nature centre
in Ojibway Park is your guide to nature and wildlife in the Windsor region. We continually
work to redesign, upgrade and renew our parks as places for people to relax and refresh.
We have several accessible themed playgrounds in different parks across the city. In all, Windsor has more than two thousand
eight hundred acres of parkland across two hundred and fifteen parks — including the
extraordinary Point Pelee national park that juts out into Lake Erie at the southernmost
point of mainland Canada.
