Vibrant Windsor is Canada’s southernmost city located just across the river from Detroit. The bustling urban centre boasts several distinctive culinary districts, beautiful waterfront parks, great shopping amenities and fascinating cultural attractions such as the renowned Odette Sculpture Park. Its rich natural beauty also makes Windsor ideal for outdoor activities like hiking, birding and golfing.
Central Windsor, also known as the Core, is the heart of the city. This area of town, accessible mainly by Ouellette Ave., is home to City Centre Mall, the Windsor Regional Hospital, St. Clair College Centre for the Arts, the Windsor Arena, Windsor City Hall, Caesars casino, and the Windsor-Detroit tunnel. Despite the many convenient amenities, Windsor’s core is also home to quiet residential areas and beautiful parks.
Bridgeview, also known as the University neighbourhood, is home to the University of Windsor and all of its residents. University of Windsor or Canterbury College students looking to rent an apartment should start in this neighbourhood for the most convenient access to their school, along with stunning views of the waterfront. The neighbourhood’s main roads, Wyandotte St. W. and University Ave. W., provide easy access to Huron Church Rd. and the Ambassador Bridge to Detroit.
Sandwich is one of Windsor’s oldest neighbourhoods with a rich history. Located just west of the Bridgeview neighbourhood, it houses many University of Windsor students. This mainly residential area is home to Mackenzie Hall Community Centre, a branch of the Windsor Public Library, schools for all ages, and beautiful Mic-Mac and Malden Parks. Peter St., which has easy access to Huron Church Rd. and the Ambassador Bridge, is home to many of the area’s apartment communities.
Located east of the central core, this area has a charming mix of residential neighbourhoods and convenient amenities, including Tecumseh Mall. East Windsor is made up of smaller neighbourhoods, such as Little River Acres, Riverside, and Forest Glade. Schools of all ages and lush green parks are spread throughout.
