The City of Windsor is preparing for a re-opening of certain businesses, locations and amenities following Thursday’s announcement from Ontario Premier Doug Ford.

“Re-openings in our community must be slow and methodical to ensure that we do not risk a spike in COVID-19 cases,” said Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens. “After months of social distancing and self-isolation, I appreciate the desire to get ‘back to normal’ – but the risks of moving too quickly are just too great.”

Golf Courses:

In Windsor, staff at the municipally run Roseland Golf and Curling Club have been preparing the course with new guidelines and restrictions designed to keep staff and patrons safe, and the course will re-open on Saturday with the first tee-time being 7:30am  Golfers are asked to review the new golfer guidelines prior to visiting.

Windsor’s Little River Golf Course will remain closed as more time is needed to prepare this facility.


Lakeview Park Marina, which was closed prior to the pandemic’s restrictions for major renovations will remain closed until construction is completed later this summer.

Boat Launches:

The boat launch at Lakeview Park Marina will remain closed, as it is within the construction zone noted above.

The small non-motorized boat launches at Stop 26 and Shanfield Shores will be ready to be open this Saturday morning by 10am.

The boat launch at McKee will remain closed due to high water levels, which have created unsafe conditions.

Tennis Courts:

Parks and Recreation staff will proceed with the inspections and cleaning of the tennis courts in parks, as well as creating signage to affix to the courts regarding the new safety guidelines for use. It is anticipated that staff will be ready to remove the chains and locks, and the courts will be ready Tuesday morning.

Off-Leash Dog Parks:

These remain closed.  Parks staff are preparing off-leash dog parks to be ready for opening once provincial regulations are finalized.
