As the area moves into Stage 3, playgrounds, play structures and outdoor fitness equipment will be re-opened starting on Wednesday, August 12th. The city says that all should be inspected and open by Friday August 14th.

The seven splash pads that re-opened on July 13th, 2020 will continue to operate from 10am to 8pm daily. Users will note that the fencing and staff that were both on site during Stage 2 will be removed as of Sunday, August 16th, and the splash pads will be unsupervised. Uses are asked to continue to follow public health measures.

The Windsor International Aquatics and Training Centre (WIATC) will be open by Monday, August 31st. This will allow for the local aquatics clubs, such as WAC, WEST and the Windsor Dive Club to resume their training. They city will also offer opportunities for reserved fitness swim lanes in one-hour increments. By the end of September, they will begin offering some Aqua-fit opportunities that will require registrations for smaller class sizes with designated spaces. There will be strict safety protocols in place in consultation with the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit. The indoor fitness centre will remain closed.

Outdoor team sports may resume but with a number of measures and restrictions in place. The City of Windsor has surveyed local sports organizations on their current plans for the 2020 season, and with reduced demand for outdoor sports field usage in 2020, the allocations have been consolidated and a limited number of fields have been made available. Park permits will also be available for small gatherings such as weddings, picnics, etc. that allow up to 100 people while following provincial health guidelines.

Ice pad rentals will be available starting Tuesday, September 8th, beginning with two pads at the WFCU Centre. Additional ice pads will be made available at other location(s) based on the demand through the finalizing of permits. The issuing of permits is being centralized through the WFCU Centre and can be confirmed by email at [email protected]

Windsor City Council has also accepted administration’s recommendation to keep all other indoor recreation and culture facilities, including Willistead Manor closed at this time. Previously booked rentals up to December 31st will be cancelled.
