The City of Windsor is looking to open two new dog parks.

One will be installed in Elizabeth Kishkon Park and the other will be at Oakwood Park.

These parks were selected based on the criteria and factors identified within the city’s Dog Park Policy.

Elizabeth Kishkon Park currently has an accessible playground, multi-use trails, and a large green space. Washrooms are being considered for the park as well.

The city has earmarked $880,000 in the capital budget for the new developments.

The City of Windsor is looking for input from residents. A survey is now available on the city’s website.

The dog parks could be ready for the summer of 2023.
