Willistead Manor hosted an open house Tuesday evening for residents to discuss and view proposals for the park’s next set of improvements.
An array of displays for the proposed plans were available for the public. Members of Windsor’s Parks Development were also present so residents could ask questions and receive information readily available.
Landscaping and rehabilitation of the Queen Victoria Fountain, landscaping of the four entrance gates and finalizing the parks tree planting plan are the main proposed improvements for Willistead.
Manager of Parks Development, Mike Clement said the dates for the park’s improvements are undetermined. Their main goal is to establish what the park will look like and go fourth from there.
Kathy Renaud, a resident who has lived in Walkerville for five years, looks forward to the park’s future improvements.
“I agree with everything that’s been done and everything that is being proposed,” said Renaud.
It is apparent not every resident will agree with the proposed improvements. According to the “Save Willistead Park” Facebook group, some residents believe the improvements have affected the park’s historic integrity.
