Peche Island is a remote location, and as such, response to medical emergencies will be difficult and possibly delayed. If you feel that for health reasons you could be in jeopardy on Peche Island, please do not visit.  The Police Marine Unit and the Coast Guard have vast areas to patrol and may not be near the island should something go wrong. City staff on the island are trained in basic first aid, CPR and defibrillator use, but they are not medical professionals. Please err on the side of caution if you have any condition that could put you in jeopardy on Peche Island.

Island information:

Peche Island, a 86-acre island was purchased by Hiram Walker in 1883. Walker used the island for a summer place, and his buildings included a stable, large home, greenhouse, and icehouse. The property was sold in 1907. The City of Windsor acquired the land from the Province of Ontario in 1999. It is now a naturalized park with walking trails and can be accessed by boat.
