Today members of the Downtown Windsor Business Improvement Association along with the City of Windsor’s Department of Parks & Recreation partnered together to further green Downtown Windsor.

Armed with garden gloves, shovels and much enthusiasm, Downtown merchants and over 30 members of the Windsor City Center Entertainment Association got together to beautify 50 cement tree planters in the city centre.

The department of  Parks & Recreation  generously donated hundreds of plants including boxwoods, spirea and grasses to the cause, and also provided volunteers with a planting demonstration.

“The City and our members who are volunteering are helping us improve the visual quality of downtown Windsor,” says Virginia Cosco-Pizzuti, DWBIA Chair. “It’s a wonderful collaboration and we’re deeply grateful to Parks & Rec for supporting our efforts.”
