Letter to the readers: Efforts to secure National Urban Park should be applauded


Content of the article

It is wonderful that the Government of Canada, through Parks Canada, has contributed $686,000 to begin the process of creating a national urban park in the Ojibway Prairie complex in Windsor.

The woodlands will be a major attraction for nature lovers, both Canadian and international, due to easy access from Highway 401 and proximity to the new Gordie Howe International Bridge.

The biologically rich primary forest, Ojibway Shores and Nature Center is expected to facilitate efforts to make the national urban park a reality.

The Public Advisory Council applauds the campaign and efforts in this regard by Mayor Drew Dilkens, City Council, MPs Irek Kusmierczyk and Brian Masse, and the local tourism and environmental communities.

One day soon, Windsor’s natural heritage will be a proud addition to Canada’s national park system.
