  • Get some air and go for a walk in Windsor on the waterfront when the weather is good. Ok if it’s insanely hot or cold maybe not but when the weather is good you get the fresh air off the river and...

  • Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! My family and I visited Windsor, Ont last summer (Aug 2021). The City did a great job beautifying the narrow parkway, adding little features such as war memorials, a water fountain rock garden with a superb views of Detroit skyline, and so on. Paths were wide enough for both pedestrians and cyclists to share. The best part was during the night.
  • The riverfront is an iconic spot in Windsor and one of the best spots to spend time alone or with family in summers. The Detroit downtown is beautiful and gives a terrific background for photography lovers. With the ongoing Windsor carnival there is a size-able moving crowd in the evening. We spent time taking pictures and just enjoying the stellar views. Parking can be an issue on busy days but it is also easy to find street parking in general.
  • Beautiful spot in Windsor. Perfect view of the Detroit skyline. A long stretch of a walk but most satisfying. Place is pretty calm and not crowded when we visited but locals say that it gets busy prior to sunset as it looks like a nice place to watch it. Lots of spots/attractions along the stretch and perfect view if the Ambassador Bridge as well.
  • Liked the beauty and calmness of the park alongside the Detroit river with a view of Detroit downtown! The best place for walking and cycling in Windsor or doing photography. This is connected to other parks like sculptures park and flowers garden. There are plenty of parking spots too, so you can put it as a destination in the city and go sightseeing!
  • Peaceful and quite scenic with several kms of paved trail. A nice walk where the water adds a little cooler temperature with a series of manicured gardens and sculptures to take in as you ride, scooter, walk or run the area.
