  • Jackson Park was decorated by Canada's government, they spent a million-and-a-half dollars on Christmas lights. Although I think that's an insane amount of money to spend on decorations that could clearly go to veterans homeless people Etc. The park was very beautiful the colors were absolutely gorgeous the decorations were beautiful. They were even places within the decorations to take family pictures. The grounds were in good condition, being that it is so new it is very very busy so if you are taking a stroller or somebody in a wheelchair it might be a little difficult to maneuver around. But if I was to recommend taking the time to see the Christmas decorations and lights and read it from one being minimal to 10 being the most I would definitely give it a 10. Is definitely worth even a quick walk-through. You might have to park a ways away and walk but it's worth it. Great job for whoever did all the work. It is truly beautiful.
  • One of the best parks in the city with a ton of local history right inside. Went out for the "Bright Lights" event and it was one of the best events the city has held in the colder months. Couldn't be happier with the experience, in the spring/summer the entire park is nearly taken care of for a perfect stroll.
  • Jackson Park is one of the most intricate parks in Windsor. Visitors to the Queen Elizabeth II Sunken Gardens can enjoy the flowers of the season: hundreds of tulips in May, followed by the abundance of summer perennials and lush annuals. The park features some of the most magnificent formal gardens and fountains in Windsor.
  • Visited the park recently for bright lights event. I the night park looked really good. Better wear warm clothes because you have to take a walk around the park to see the "light sculptures". It's best if you are equipped with tripods to get good pics of yours!
  • One of Windsor’s nicest parks. The city has done a great job with the winter light show. Great idea to get the community outdoors during this frigid winter temperature. Very scenic environment in the summer time too. A must see for anyone visiting the area.

Where to stay in Windsor

Accommodations in the border city cater primarily to transit travelers, with a range of motels and basic inns serving as affordable places to rest. Look to Huron Church Road--the main thoroughfare approaching the border--for the biggest selection of transitory accommodations. If you're hoping to explore the city itself, you can find a few more inviting hotels in the center, with the most exclusive of these offering views over the Detroit River.
