The Jackson Park Sunken Gardens (Tecumseh Road) and the Dieppe Gardens (Quellette Street) are particularly worth seeing for their roses. This park features one of Windsor's most classic and elegant gardens which has won an Ontario Parks Association Award for the best lighted garden in Ontario. Covers 65 acres, with four of those acres occupied by the formal Rose Gardens, where visitors can find over 12,000 rose bushes among 450 varieties. With 10000 plants is undoubtedly one of Windsor's foremost attractions.
There is also a World War II a memorial for the soldiers from Windsor who never returned from the war. An almost fuill scale replica of a Spitfire Mk IX has been mounted on a pylon in Jackson Park alongside a Hurricane as a memorial to Royal Canadian Air Force pilots. This display replaces an Avro Lancaster bomber that had previously been on display and is currently undergoing restoration.
The Boer War monument was dedicated in honour of those who paid the supreme sacrifice and to those who served in the Korean War from June 25, 1950 to July 27, 1953.
In an adjacent park, there are barbecue pits and play areas for the kids.
