The City of Windsor has launched the final phase of $1.1 million in infrastructure improvements to two public parks in Ward 10.

Work will begin this month to build 400 metres of accessible multi-use trails in Langlois Court Park located on South Pacific Avenue, and a second 600-metre multi-use trail will be installed in the adjacent Southdale Park. Both asphalt trails will be 10 feet wide, in compliance with modern accessibility standards, and nearly double the width of the 30-year-old pathway that is being replaced.

These trails are an extension of the new 660-metre multi-use trail that was built last year from Parent Avenue East to South Pacific Avenue in Langlois Court Parkette. When construction of the final phase is completed this fall, residents will have access to a full 2.4 kilometres of continuous modern bicycling trail connecting three key parks: Remington, Langlois Court and Southdale.

In addition to the upgraded 1.6-kilometre multi-use trail, the project at Langlois Court and Southdale Parks will also include the following:

  • Drainage improvements to reduce flooding
  • 21 new benches with concrete pads
  • 34 LED lights
  • About 150 new trees planted between both parks
  • 2 picnic tables in Langlois Court Park
