“Beautiful park to for a nice summer walk.”
Review of Coventry Gardens

Coventry Gardens
Ranked #13 of 86 things to do in Windsor
Attraction details
Reviewed 24 May 2017

Very spacious park with well maintained trails, right on the south shore of the Detroit River, across from Belle Isle. You can enjoy the various configurations of the Peace Fountain (which changes frequently) while watching the boat traffic on the river.
The garden features lots of sculpted shrubbery on the street side of the park so you can use your imagination to see birds, turtles, dinosaurs, and many more.

Lots and lots of natural beauty to take in while you stroll through this free park. Trees are sculpted to appear as animals ,and many monuments to look at as well ,The park is the home to Windsors peace fountain ,which is one of a kind ,and illuminates in different colors during evening hrs .very family friendly and wheel chair accessible,a great place to visit with out of town guests ,it also shows a great view of the Detroit skyline ,no reservations required ,lots of room to rome or sit and have an ice cream while watching the passing ships on the Detroit River water way.During the Summer its a favourite spot for wedding photos .Sunrise or sunset the views are spectacular,and also makes a nice romantic walk .

Beautiful gardens and a great view of the Detroit River. This park is a great place for a family to spend an afternoon for lunch of a great spot for an after dinner walk and of course ice cream for dessert.

Over looking the Detroit River and the Detroit Skyline, we are blessed to have this in our community for everyone to enjoy.
In the summer the Peace fountain comes alive and at night is light up with multiple light colors to show its beauty !

One of my favourite places. Parking on and off site just 1\2 block up Pillette. Grab an ice cream cone and stroll along the river to the huge floating fountain which not only is illuminated with colour changing lights but it also changes water patterns. Sit and relax for a while and then wander down the walkway through the massive assortment of flowers, animal shaped shrubs and various perennials.
