Municipal Services and Amenities Impacted
The City of Windsor is acting as quickly as possible to action the latest provincial orders, which take affect Saturday, May 22, 2021.
“We’ve seen declining cases of both COVID-19 and hospitalizations so a gradual reopening makes sense,” says Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens. “But we all need to remain very careful and cautious to ensure we don’t slip backwards. Enjoy the extra outdoor amenities but please keep physical distancing and mask use in mind.”
The following changes take effect Saturday, May 22, 2021.
The Lakeview Park Marina boat launch ramp will be open to seasonal boaters only until May 27, 2021. Those who have already received their permit for 2021 will be contacted by marina staff to schedule an appointment for first-time access to their slip for the coming season. The general public access to the boat ramp will begin May 27, 2021.
The boat launch in McKee Park and the small craft launches at Shanfield Shores and Stop 26 are already open.
Roseland Golf and Curling Club and Little River Golf Club will both open Saturday.
