The City of Windsor Parks department has deemed a number of parks across the city as surplus and are looking looking to dispose of them.
Parks chosen for disposal were based on the proximity they are to other parks and the ability to consolidate several neighborhood parks into one. By consolidating parks the city will be able to save on park maintenance and playground equipment upkeep.
Money from the sale of these assets will go into an account to be used to replace playground equipment at other parks in the city that is deficient.
In 2012 the city will attempt to sell off Long Park in East Windsor and South Tilson park in Bridgeview. Administration hopes to sell off two surplus park’s a year until they are all sold.

Ward Two: Merrit North, Merrit South, Girardot, Tilston North and Tilston South.

Ward Four: Kinsmen Park.
Ward Five: Factoria, Westcott, Unity, Long and George parks.
