On Friday, the city showed off the completion of a $22.1-million project to expand Windsor’s potable water storage capacity and fully redevelop George Avenue Park.

The new George Avenue underground reservoir adds 35 megalitres to Windsor’s storage capacity for potable water, ensuring the continued abundant supply of safe and clean drinking water for residents. This amount is equal to 14 Olympic-size swimming pools and is capable of supplying average residential water usage for approximately 150,000 people, or to about 60,000 homes, per day.

The revitalization of George Avenue Park includes the following additions:

  • A new nature/wetland-themed playground
  • 610 metres of concrete pathways
  • Fenced, rubber-surface basketball court
  • Shelter with two picnic tables
  • 195 new trees
  • 8 benches
  • 14 lights
  • 6 new catch basins for drainage improvements
  • 16-spot asphalt parking lot
