The City of Windsor has allocated $26 million to enhance and improve parks including $650,000 for Stodgell Park and the surrounding area.
Project plans were unveiled recently and work will include:
- new parking lot
- 680-metre multi-use trail installed around the park
- solar lights and waste receptacles
- construction of a toboggan hill
“These upgrades to Stodgell Park are just some of the first enhancements we have coming to our parks and recreation offerings in 2023,” said Mayor Drew Dilkens. The new multi-use trail will add to the existing network of trails in the city and will help to continue to promote an active and healthy lifestyle for Windsor residents.
“Today’s unveiling is great news for our Walkerville residents, and the broader community.”
Additional improvements will be completed later this year, with installation of nine benches equipped with concrete pads, planting of an additional thirty trees throughout the park, and installation of two soccer field posts and nets in the spring.
