“Beautiful park, wonderful waterfront, great fishing too.”
Review of Coventry Gardens

Attraction details
Reviewed 20 July 2017

A staple of Windsor's east end, this waterfront park has it all. Easily accessible from Riverside Drive. Great place for an early morning walk/job, or a romantic walk to watch the fountain light up at night. If the breeze is stiff enough on a hot day, a walk by the fountain can even result in a refreshing mist of water! A small snack bar provides drink and ice cream. The west end of this park also has a wonderful area for fishing - catch perch, and impressive size bass here! It also has lighting so you can visit in the evening. One of the most impressive parts of visiting here is watching the massive ships sailing the St. Lawrence Seaway.

Gorgeous gardens, beautiful flowers and shrubs and a walking path along the river. Peace fountain that constantly changes and the views of the Detroit skyline in the background all make for a lovely place to take a walk at anytime of the day.

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.

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.
