The City of Windsor is closing all play structures in the City of Windsor’s parks are closed until further notice.

Parks, trails and open spaces remain open and, following the best advice of public health officials, their continued use is strongly encouraged. However, play structures, swings and children’s activity sets are being closed to reduce opportunities for gatherings and close contact, thereby lowering the potential risks associated with COVID-19 within the City of Windsor.

The City of Windsor maintains 989 hectares of parkland, 134 kilometres of trails, 137 playgrounds and over 2,000 acres of green space across our community. These open spaces allow for appropriate social distancing, while permitting residents to remain active and fit, both physically and mentally during the current public health crisis.

“For almost two weeks, my family and I have been in self-isolation after returning from overseas,” said Mayor Drew Dilkens “One of the first things we all plan to do when this period ends is to take a family hike through one of our neighbourhood trails. While we are asking parents to avoid the swings and playgrounds, I will always encourage residents to get fresh air and exercise and to enjoy one of the many open spaces maintained by the City of Windsor.”
