Existing Accessible Playgrounds

The Parks Department in the City of Windsor is designing and constructing new spaces for our children to exercise, play, and imagine. While continually working to redesign, upgrade and renew our parks as places for people to relax and refresh, Parks has implemented a number of new accessible playgrounds across the city since 2012. Find one near you using MappMyCity.
