  • Windsor Castle Park makes me smile just to think about it! Everyone i know loves to go there, whether to walk, run, kayak, have a wedding or just be out in a great green space, especially when there is a wine fest there. Thank you Joe Luter and everyone else who had a part in creating this fabulous place for locals and visitors alike. Windsor Castle Park is a winner and makes all of us SMILE!
  • Great for kayakers. They have a boat ramp specifically designed for launching kayaks. Lots of options for where to paddle. The park was clean and inviting. Highly recommend for a nice day trip on a sunny day.
  • Was pleasantly surprised by this park! We put in at the kayak ramp and it was very well maintained and easy to use. Beautiful grounds and lots of activities to choose from!
  • Such a great place to get out into nature with just the right amount of shade and sun. Kayak rentals and launch too! Such a great experience to see animals too!
