Great for drinks and appies or dining. Peaceful beautiful view of riverfront and Detroit. You must experience if visiting downtown Windsor. Only a short walk west of the Casino

This is an extended Riverfront path that is mulit-purpose. You will see all ages of people enjoying the sites and walking, strolling, biking, blading on the pathways and through the various gardens. A true pleasure.

Always enjoyable to walk along the Riverfront. My favourite place is Reaume Park which is at the end of Pillette Road. Absolutely beautiful gardens which are immaculate. The City staff do an excellent job!! A must see for out-of-town friends.
