Create an itinerary including Jackson Park
Jackson Park is a park south of Downtown Windsor, Ontario, Canada. Acquired in 1929, with the persistence of then mayor Cecil E. Jackson, Windsor City Council voted in favour of purchasing the land from the Jockey Club. At the same meeting where the land was purchased, City Council decided to name the new park after their Mayor. Jackson Park has long been considered one of Windsor's most beautiful parks and attractions. It is most known for its yearly display annual garden beds and a large array of perennial plants. In the winter months, Jackson hosts Bright Lights Windsor, a Christmas light display put on by the City.

  • Jackson Park is an incredible public space full of green. Lots of activities throughout the year and open to use by the public anytime. Great place for a picnic right now.

  • This park is beautiful and highly recommend it. In the summer they have an amazing garden, great for pictures or just walking around. Last time I was there we noticed several families having professional pictures taken. In the winter they put on an amazing light display that you can walk around. It is pretty extensive and I was surprised at how nice it was. I added some photos from my recent trip in the summer
  • What a fantastic park this is. We casually stumbled upon it after we got some takeout at a nearby restaurant and we're looking for a place to eat our food at. Parking lot is a generous size. Washrooms onsite is handy. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, well maintained. Seems to be a lot of war/war victim monuments, which was very cool to see. We'll definitely come back next Summer and enjoy it during the peak season. Highly recommend stopping here if you're looking for a park. 5/5. Follow me for more reviews, photos and tips.
  • It’s a amazing park in the middle of the city. There are plenty of parking and well maintained gardens. The location is great for a picnic or walk around with your family and friends. It is excellent location for outdoor pictures and photo shoot. The washroom is neatly maintained.
  • Absolutely beautiful during the holidays. Went with my mum for the first time this year and was pleasantly surprised with the light display, absolutely whimsical! And there were a couple food trucks near the entrance as well, and the public washrooms are quite clean.
  • Haven't had an opportunity to walk around the gardens here in summer for a while since I'm only ever visiting Windsor in the winter and going for the lights display. It's such a nice park, good alternative to walking along the river for a change of scenery.
