Public School Board And City Partner To Deliver Recreation And Culture Services And Opportunities

Saturday October 8th, 2022, 3:05pm


A new partnership has been announced between the  Public school board and the City.

The one-year pilot includes William G. Davis Public School and Talbot Trail Public School. The City will initially offer programming from 6:00pm to 8:15pm from Monday through Thursday with four programs per day per school location. Two sports-focused programs will run at each site in the gymnasium, with an additional two art-based programs running out of the library.

In exchange, the school board will have access to eight City of Windsor parks during regular school hours for student activities, providing additional green space for outdoor learning and activities. The following City parks will be part of the pilot: Lanspeary Park, AKO Park, Realtor Park, Riverside Miracle Park, Ford Test Track Park, Forest Glade Optimist Park, Wigle Park, and Bush Park.

The partners have entered into a Joint Use Agreement to maximize facility usage, reduce operating expenditures, share responsibilities and resources, and minimize duplications of constructing and operating gymnasium spaces. The new partnership is cost neutral.
