The City of Windsor says they are acting as quickly as possible to action the latest provincial orders, which took affect at 12:01 Saturday morning.

“The modeling data released by the Province of Ontario paints a very dire picture. The entire goal of these public health measures is to help lower COVID-19 case counts and save lives. I strongly urge all residents to take this seriously and follow public health recommendations,” said Windsor Mayor, Drew Dilkens.

The following changes take effect immediately and add to the previous restrictions concerning parks, recreation, facilities and services. These latest changes are expected to be in effect at least until the expiration of the provincial orders, May 20th, 2021.

Recreational Facilities:

  • The planned re-opening of the Lakeview Park Marina fuel docks and boat launch ramp has been postponed, as the most recent Provincial Regulation does not permit a Marina to be used for recreational purposes.
  • The boat launch in McKee Park and the small craft launches at Shanfield Shores and Stop 26 are open.
  • Roseland Golf and Curling Club and Little River Golf Club are both closed under the new restrictions.

Parks Amenities:

Open, as long as two metres physical distancing can be maintained:

  • parks and recreational areas, including benches
  • playgrounds, play structures, and play equipment
  • off-leash dog parks

Closed (including but not limited to):

  • outdoor sports facilities, such as golf courses, tennis courts, basketball courts and skate parks
  • baseball diamonds, soccer fields and other multi-use fields
  • picnic sites and picnic tables

Virtual Spring Programming:

  • The City of Windsor is offering a variety of online programming including the “Home Alone” Program (8 to 12 years), “Learn to Babysit” (ages 12 and up) and Dance Classes for all ages, and more. Virtual tutoring is also available. Programs will be offered in the evening beginning the week of April 19, 2021. Residents are required to register in advance to be able to participate. Pathway to Potential (P2P) funding is available to eligible registrants.  Visit citywindsor.ca.
