“Fishing, Fountains, Weddings oh my.”
Reviewed 16 May 2012

About 8kms east from downtown Windsor on Riverside Dr East you'll find Coventry Gardens aka Reaume Park, home of the Peace Fountain.

Parking is amply but can be challenging during the warmer months, a popular place for wedding shots. Along river you'll find people fishing over the railing on the lengthy concrete ledge. The gardens are well manicured and picnic table are scattered around shaded by many trees.

The Peace Fountain is the highlight of Conventry Gardens. If you're in Windsor from May to October ensure you make a point visit the attraction which as graced many postcards.
It's returned to is place in set along the river front during the Victoria holiday in May where it remains until Thanksgiving and stored for Winter. The Peace Fountain make for an idyllic evening walk and concerts are held during summer evening.

A beautiful part of Windsor's river front.

“Beautiful gardens.”
Reviewed 22 April 2012

Situated on the waterfront along the Detroit River this garden is the perfect location for strolling, having picnics or spending the afternoon enjoying a peaceful setting. There is a fountain in the water which lights up and changes colours continually. A romantic spot to stroll in the evenings. The perfect setting to take wedding pictures, you're likely to see bridal parties every weekend.
