Reimagined Adie Knox Herman Recreation Complex

In the City of Windsor Recreation Master Plan, the City identified a vision to transform this outdated facility into a hub of community vitality that would provide a central access point for a much-needed range of health and social services, along with cultural, recreational and green spaces to enhance community life.

This vision will be achieved through the addition and renovation of the existing facility to include the following:

  • Community hub area
  • Full-sized gymnasium
  • Program rooms
  • Commercial kitchen
  • Seating areas
  • Family gathering area
  • Indoor and outdoor walking path
  • Basketball court
  • Tennis/pickle ball courts
  • Splash pad
  • Playground
  • Art room
  • Maker space
  • Increased parking and drop-off areas

These programs will provide a synergy with nearby arts and culture facilities, such as the Chimczuk Museum, François Baby House, Windsor Sculpture Park, Art Gallery of Windsor and St. Clair College. The enhancements will allow a significant increase in community use and programming for residents within the university district of central Windsor and throughout the city.

Key to this expansion is a facility upgrade to increase energy efficiency, meet net-zero ready carbon standards, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve climate resilience.

In keeping with the goal of fostering inclusion, accessibility will be a focus throughout the final design of the new facility. Enhancements relating to mobility, wayfinding, and visual and auditory considerations will ensure that the facility is available and accessible to all.
