The City of Windsor is adding 120 solar and 90 LED lights across 14 municipal parks.

The project is made possible with contributions from Windsor City Council, ward funds and CUPE Local 82 to support the investment of nearly $1 million.

The solar-powered lights are an affordable, low-maintenance and energy-efficient solution to illuminating pathways and multi-use trails. They are equipped with motion-sensor technology that switches on the lamps when passersby are detected and dims the lights when no one is present in order to conserve energy.

Parks Include:

  • Polonia Park:  18 solar lights
  • Remington: 30 solar lightsWalker Homesite: 15 solar lights
  • Forest Glade: 26 traditional LED lights
  • Langlois/Southdale: 6 solar lights and 34 traditional LED lights
  • Bridgeview: 9 traditional LED lights
  • Riverfront: 27 traditional LED lights
  • Bellewood: 7 traditional LED lights
  • Optimist Memorial: 5 solar lights
  • Maple Leaf: 12 solar lights
