If you're touring Windsor take Riverside Drive a couple of miles East of Downtown to Coventry Gardens. Of course there are beautiful gardens and interesting vegetation and topiary but there are also expansive lawns where your children can play. Walkways lined with giant stones lead you through the park. In the mornings especially this is a significant sport fishing spot.... More

A great location overseeing Detroit Belle Island. Very interesting park that you will enjoy anytime of the day, specially at dusk. Snow or shine, this park has a lot of natural beauty, shrubs, fishing (yes early morning fishing), clean wide lawns and a very beautiful fountain. The Windsor Symphony Orchestra plays there in the spring. Loads of fun for the... More

This hidden gem is on Riverside Dr in East Windsor. It's a well cared for riverfront location that has lush colorful gardens, benches, and paved pathways. Lot's here for camera enthusiasts or a good place to read without crowds on a sunny day.

This is such a cozy little park east of downtown. It is a little hidden and out of the way for the average tourist to Windsor, but worth the trip if you like parks. Since I have family that live right across the street from this park, I’m here somewhat often. It is such a delight to watch the river... More

As a resident of Windsor, this is my favourite park to come and visit. It is a small park within a 10 minute drive from downtown and Cesar's Windsor. Free parking is also a big bonus. The relaxed environment provides an excellent location to sit back an enjoy the scenery. I would also recommend this park as a great picnic... More
