Trip Planner: Windsor / Jackson Park
Jackson Park is a park south of Downtown Windsor, Ontario, Canada. Acquired in 1929, with the persistence of then mayor Cecil E. Jackson, Windsor City Council voted in favour of purchasing the land from the Jockey Club. At the same meeting where the land was purchased, City Council decided to name the new park after their Mayor. Jackson Park has long been considered one of Windsor's most beautiful parks and attractions. It is most known for its yearly display annual garden beds and a large array of perennial plants. In the winter months, Jackson hosts Bright Lights Windsor, a Christmas light display put on by the City.Before you head to Windsor, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Windsor trip itinerary builder website, to make sure you see all that Windsor has to offer, including Jackson Park.
Jackson Park reviews
Jackson Park is an incredible public space full of green. Lots of activities throughout the year and open to use by the public anytime. Great place for a picnic right now.

This park is beautiful and highly recommend it. In the summer they have an amazing garden, great for pictures or just walking around. Last time I was there we noticed several families having professional pictures taken. In the winter they put on an amazing light display that you can walk around. It is pretty extensive and I was surprised at how nice it was. I added some photos from my recent trip in the summer
What a fantastic park this is. We casually stumbled upon it after we got some takeout at a nearby restaurant and we're looking for a place to eat our food at. Parking lot is a generous size. Washrooms onsite is handy. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, well maintained. Seems to be a lot of war/war victim monuments, which was very cool to see. We'll definitely come back next Summer and enjoy it during the peak season. Highly recommend stopping here if you're looking for a park. 5/5. Follow me for more reviews, photos and tips.
