City Council Approves Save the Park Proposal

City Council Approves Save the Park Proposal Wow, it was quite a night last night at City Council for the Miracle Field group! In case you haven’t heard, Council approved our proposal by a vote of 9-1. Rick Farrow came through in a big way, announcing a $500, 000 donation for the project! The support throughout the Riverside area and the entire Windsor community was huge in getting this project passed. Very few can match the generosity of the Farrow family, but the emails, lawn signs, petitions, phone calls to Councillors, posters, and the work by the Riverside Minor Baseball group were all instrumental in getting the Miracle Field project off of the ground.

Save The Park Update

Save The Park Update URGENT!! Regarding the June 19 City Council Meeting to discuss the proposed Miracle Field Project. We are profoundly disappointed to learn that the Report of Administration to City Council recommends that the City of Windsor move forward with residential/commercial development on the former Riverside Minor Hockey Arena site. If City Council approves the Administration recommendation, it will mean that the Riverside Minor Baseball’s proposal for a Miracle Field project will die. There will be: NO Miracle Field accessible to all children in our community. NO neighbourhood walking track. NO accessible playground. Read the full administrative report online here. We need your voice and participation at the June 19th City Council Meeting! If you’d like to speak directly to the issue, you must sign up as a delegation. To do so, email clerks@citywindsor.ca by Noon on Friday, June 16th.. More details on presenting as a delegation can be found online here. Please note, you do not need to sign…

A Letter from a Concerned Citizen

A Letter from a Concerned Citizen David Leslie: I moved my family back to Windsor in 1979 and at the urging of my wife decided to make Riverside our home. My wife had attended school in the Riverside area and fell in love with the community. We bought a house very close to St. Rose church and school just east of Riverside Arena and park which we still live in today. It wasn’t very long before we became very involved in the community and Riverside Arena and park became a second home for my three children. Each of my children learned how to swim at the community pool at the park and spent many hours there during the summer months. My son played hockey at the arena for several years in the winter months and baseball with Riverside baseball in the summer. My girls also got involved with figure skating each winter and both of them played in the girl’s softball league at the park as well each summer. I also got to enjoy the park. We always had a dog for the children as they were growing up and I would walk those dogs almost…

Save The Park Project

Save The Park Project Riverside Minor Baseball Association, in cooperation with a number of community partners, has developed a conceptual plan for Riverside Baseball Park and former Riverside Memorial Arena lands. We believe this park is an important public asset that should be enjoyed by the citizens of Riverside (and the broader Windsor community) for generations to come. This land was donated to the community more than 80 years ago with the purpose of creating a central gathering point for the community of Riverside. Sports and other local events have been happening there ever since. Click here to see the Formal Proposal! Work is well underway to make this project a reality, but we still need your help! We need to let our elected leaders know that this project is important for the community of Riverside and Windsor as a whole. We need you to call, email, or talk with your councillor about why we need to Save the Park for future generations! Click here for a full list of councillor’s email addresses and…
