Description: 

A developed multi-sports park area (4.31 hectares) with playing fields, a park pavilion, wheel chair accessible children’s’ play area, rose garden (heritage designation) and accessible scented garden.

Windsor Park is an active multi-sport and recreational park where children and adults enjoy the benefits of sport competition for a range of activities including soccer, rugby, cricket, field hockey, tennis, baseball, and softball on safe, well maintained fields and amenities.

In addition to its sports focus, the park also provides for more passive enjoyment by visitors with its picnic and play area, sitting areas, Rose and Scented Garden, and indoor meeting rooms in a completely rebuilt building on the original site. This new facility (2006) houses a children’s program room, a main hall, and change rooms all on the first floor. The bright multi purpose rooms on the second floor can be divided into 4 meeting rooms by means of movable walls or used as 2 larger rooms. In addition to municipal recreation programming, the facility is available for rentals by community sports and cultural groups and also for private functions.

Casual, unorganized use is allowed during times that the fields are not used by permit holders or closed for maintenance.

The tennis courts use is on a ‘first-come, first-served’ basis and players must abide by the posted rules for play.

Dog Information: 

Dogs are allowed to be off leash on the playing fields in the park if the field is not being used by permit holders and only during the following times:

Windsor Park is used by a very active and organized dog walking group that utilizes the fields in the early morning hours for off-leash exercise for dogs. This group has taken responsibility for assuring communication with other dog users of the park and created a website promoting responsible dog use of parks.

Dogs are not allowed in the Rose Garden, children’s play area, or in Windsor Pavilion at any time.
