Free public WiFi Internet service will be available at a number of Lakeshore parks after Council agreed to provide a Letter of Support to Gosfield North Communications.

“This service will be yet another reason to visit Lakeshore’s incredible parks and public spaces and is a step towards digital inclusion and accessibility,” said Mayor Tracey Bailey. “The addition of free WiFi will help bridge the digital divide and provide free access to reliable Internet to individuals and community members who need it most. We appreciate Gosfield North Communication’s leadership, and we are proud to partner with them on this important initiative.”

Lakeshore is the first municipality in Essex County to benefit from the initiative, which was made possible by a grant awarded to Gosfield North Communications through Connecting Windsor-Essex.

The project will see the installation of necessary infrastructure at each of the designated public locations including:

  • • Optimist Park, 775 Tecumseh Road
  • Ladouceur/Lions Park, 245 Ouellette Street
  • Lakeshore Town Hall, 419 Notre Dame Street
  • Duck Creek Park, 130 Duck Creek Boulevard
  • Lakeview Park (trail and marina), 10 Lake Street
  • Millen Park, 1925 South Middle Road
  • Orioles Park, 1409 Oriole Park Drive
  • Comber Fairgrounds Park, 6211 McCallister Street

Gosfield North Communications will be responsible for the ongoing operation, maintenance, and support of the service. To facilitate ease of use, signage will be erected at each location, along with contact information for assistance.

The free WiFi service in Lakeshore’s parks is expected to be available by mid-2024.
