The city is planning to build 32 new play structures at public parks across Windsor over the next year at an estimate cost of $9.4-million.

Once complete, nearly 70% of all 125 public play structures will be upgraded and modernized.

The 32 playgrounds range in age from 20 to 28 years and have been identified by administration as having reached the end of their useful life span. They will be replaced with state-of-the-art, fully accessible facilities encompassing innovative design to offer children a safe, inclusive and enriching outdoor environment to learn and play.

The 32 parks slated to receive new playgrounds include the following:

  • Ward 1: Lake Laguna, Matthew Rodzik, Dynasty and Kominar park
  • Ward 2: McKee and Bradley parks
  • Ward 3: Fred Thomas and Alton C. Parker parks
  • Ward 4: Gignac, Willistead, Garwood, Kid’s Alliance and Devonshire parks
  • Ward 5: Mayfair, Robert and Francois parks
  • Ward 6: Homesite and St. Paul Grove parks
  • Ward 7: Cora Greenwood, Ganatchio/Little River Corridor Trail, Seneca, Stillmeadow and South Rendezvous parks
  • Ward 8: Coletta, Thurston and Shawnee parks
  • Ward 9: Kenilworth, Maple Leaf and Patrick McGuire parks
  • Ward 10: Avondale Playlot, Brookview and Aboriginal parks

A virtual public information consultation will open August 6th on CityWindsor.ca to invite input from residents about what features, themes or special considerations they would like to see applied in their proposed new neighbourhood playground. Residents are encouraged to complete the online surveys by August 27th. This public feedback will help inform the design of the new play structures, which are expected to be built over the next two summers.
