In the early 1980s, the Bruce Avenue Citizens' Committee began meeting with Parks and Recreation Department officials to discuss the possibility of establishing a new park in the area. Appropriately, various funding avenues were explored, and in 1983, City officials announced that the Province had agreed to fund fifty percent of the $800,000 project.
In 1983, the City began actively purchasing property in the area. The former site of the Windsor Lawn Bowling Club was acquired, and various residential properties on the 700 block of Bruce Avenue were purchased. Throughout the late 1980s and early 1990s, the City acquired and incorporated properties into Bruce Avenue Park. The City continues to look at properties and incorporate them as funds become available.
Currently, this multi‑faceted park is equipped with a wide variety of traditional playground equipment, a creative play unit, both basketball and tennis courts, benches, and a shelter.
