This is a gorgeous attraction along the Riverwalk that is free to stroll through. There are hundreds and hundreds of beautiful flowers throughout the Garden. There are memorials as well. It is so pretty and doesn't cost a thing. Detroit has a great skyline from across the river you can see. It would take you about an hour and a... More

Good part of Canadian history is displayed here, garden is very well maintained and it is a joy sitting there with a coffee enjoying the views and smells of many different flowers.

A beautiful area - not exactly what I expected in downtown Windsor. I had heard a lot of negative things about downtown Windsor but this area is obviously a place to be proud of. There are walking and bike paths and some beautiful gardens. Worth the stop just to enjoy the scenery.

Dieppe Gardens is located right downtown in Windsor directly on the Waterfront. It has meticulously maintained flowerbeds and interesting vegetation. There are quiet places to walk and to sit and you will enjoy a beautiful view of the Detroit River and Detroit Skyline. The views you see of the Detroit Skyline in every TV broadcast are filmed from Dieppe Gardens... More

This is a beautiful riverfront park which is a must see if you are in the Windsor area. Plenty of places to sit and people watch, have a picnic, view the Detroit skyline and waterfront, watch the boat activity on the Detroit river, or go for a leisurely walk or jog. This is also a place to reflect on history... More

I love our riverfront. I walk down here every day at lunch to sit on the bench and enjoy the view. Windsor definitely lucked out in our riverfront department. Spanning almost the entire river uninterrupted, you can start down at Dieppe Park and walk all the way to Old Sandwich town. There are plenty of good spots for photo opportunities,... More

A very nice park. It is meticulously maintained and has a great view of Detroit. There is an area with a small pond with waterfall from the street.

Major upgrades in last two years. Riverfront park. Lot of activities. Walking/jogging walkway. Safe place to walk. Just a couple of hundred feet from Caesars Windsor. Lake boats and Ocean going boats sail within three hundred feet of shore.
