The best way to see the Dieppe Gardens and experience the Windsor-Detroit waterfront is by taking the ART CART Tour. My friends and I were just walking by and saw the sign for the tour at the foot of Ouellette ave. The tour guide picked us up in a large golf cart and gave us an AMAZING tour as we drove by the sculptures. He also pointed out landmarks on both sides of the border and through out some interesting historic facts along the way. We had a lot of fun, learned about the area, took great pictures, and best of all......it was FREE!

Located at the foot of Ouellette Ave and Riverside Dr, Dieppe Gardens borders the Detroit river looking north (yes north) to our neighbour Detroit, MI. It's frequented by tourists, walkers, cyclists, anglers and employees enjoying a break outdoors.

Detroit beautiful skyline is anchored by the towers of the Ren-Cen home of GM's world headquarters. It's a popular location for media providing a dramatic backdrop.
To the west the international Ambassador bridge can been seen and to the east the bridge linking Detroit to Belle Isle. It is the docking of cruise lines and also the Canadian Coast Guard and Navel vessels.

Dieppe Gardens is along the 8km leisure pathway and has a restaurant and the steam train Spirit of Windsor. It also hosts many commemorative ceremonies throughout the year and the ideal spot to be to enjoy the fireworks display held at the end of June. If in Windsor, ensure you take a photo at Dieppe Gardens.

This used to be beautiful little park commemorating the needless loss of Canadian soldier's lives at the failed Dieppe Landings in WW2. There was a nice shelter with concession and a small carpark. The whole thing was surrounded by a beautiful floral garden.

Now the Gardens are nothing more than a carpark with a view of Detroit. The remaining gardens are uninspiring rather like the local administration who were responsible for ruining a little oasis.

Dieppe Park is one of Windsor, Ontario's gems. The park is dedicated to all the brave Canadian soldiers who fought in the Battle of Dieppe in World War II. Many local families lost loved ones. The park is ideally located along the Detroit River directly across from Detroit. It is an ideal location to walk, bike or roller blade in a beautiful setting. Several gardens, a patio restaurant, memorial statues and a children's playground enhance the view of the Detroit River. Festivals every weekend during the summer months make this the place be be in downtown Windsor. Very family friendly, there's something for all age groups to enjoy.

I kind of miss the old Dieppe Gardens before they tore down the concession. New is not always better.
