Drop-in a chance to weigh in on national urban park

Interested in the national urban park proposed for the Ojibway complex? The City of Windsor and Parks Canada are holding a public drop-in session Wednesday for discussion of the concept.

At the event, attendees will be able to learn about the proposal, including the steps toward designation, view maps of the draft study area, and share ideas about the park.

The event is being held at the John Muir Library, 363 Mill St., on Dec. 7 from 4 to 6 p.m.

“There is currently only one national urban park in Canada and the fact that we’re working towards transitioning the Ojibway Prairie Complex and surrounding natural areas into a national urban park is truly a testament to what a gem we have here in Windsor-Essex,” said Deepashika Senaratne, a third-year biochemistry student and a member of the Friends of Ojibway Prairie board.

“I would highly recommend attending this event so you can learn more about what this park would mean for our community.”

With the drop-in format of the event, interested parties can stop by at any time convenient for them between 4 and 6 p.m. More information can be found on the City of Windsor website.
