The manor itself is breathtaking. The grounds are large and gorgeous, great for picnics and family outings. On the weekends you will often find wedding parties getting their pictures taken. In June of every year (usually the first week) they have Art in the Park where artists from all around the area and Ontario come to show their wares. It... More

The Rotary puts on Art in the Park every year with outstanding number of visitors. Well worth the trip to make a stop here. Willistead Manor on the grounds does weddings and the flowers are a great backdrop for pictures. A treasure here in Windsor.

We attended a wedding here and it was out of this world. The setting was perfect and it was a beautiful day in May with the sun shining down upon our shoulders. The organisers were very helpful and the food served excellent. Highly recommended for those looking for a traditional English experience.

I visited Willistead Manor last December. It was like stepping back a hundred years ago looking at all the Christmas decorations. This manor was built by the Walker Family and left to the city for all to enjoy. We are so lucky to have so many beautiful places in our city that we are able to visit.

Enclosed by a sturdy stone and wrought-iron fence, with impressive entrance gates, Willistead Manor Park is a lovely and relaxing spot in the heart of Olde Walkerville. The spacious grounds feature clumps of mature trees, winding pathways, and park benches upon which to relax. The park includes an accessible washroom and a small playground area. The centrepiece of the park... More

Very Gorgeous Manor nestled away in the park. Didn't know if they did tours of the Manor I was informed they held events there such as weddings and the like but it would be nice if they allowed tours. was sitting in the back and it looked like there were broken windows, what a pity if someone ruined them purposely.

I remember touring Willistead Manor one Christmas maybe 25 or more years ago and I was delighted to be able to do it again this past December. In addition to the opportunity to experience the history and beauty of this lovely landmark, the seasonal tour offers a spectacle of lovely Christmas trees and festive holiday decor on display throughout the...
