    I would vote for public access to the river. We are a river community that is getting squeezed out by the citizens that can afford to develop our water access. So a public marina and fishing pier would be appreciated by many people. Also I would love to see the area from Texas Road into Town be cleaned up and made available for public use, kind of like Windsor's waterfront with areas to picnic and such.

    How about improving existing parks? River canard park is very sad and old. They keep removing equipment but never replace anything. It would be nice to rejuvenate this park that has been around for 30 years.

    I would LOVE to see improvements to the park in River Canard. I am a recent resident to the neighbourhood and was quite disappointed with the park here. It seems as if this sub division has been swallowed up by Amherstburg and has been all but forgotten. The neighbourhood is rejuvenating with new families constantly, more and more children are becoming a presence to the area, but they are left with a poor excuse of a park to play. St. Joseph school is also expanding rapidly with their brilliant plan of bringing French Immersion back to the school, which makes the area much more appealing to newcomers, and then their welcomed to that park! It's almost impossible to navigate the ridiculous narrow sidewalks in the park. I would hate for someone with mobility issues to attempt accessing the park as there would be no way a wheelchair could gain access. You can barely manage a stroller on the "sidewalks', if you can even call them that. Whenever it rains or the snow melts, half of these paths are under water making it difficult for parents and students alike to walk to and from the church and school. I honestly think I have a better play structure in my own back yard compared to the park. While it would be brilliant to implement a splash pad to the neighbourhood, even just the improved access and a greatly improved play structure would be stellar! We do pay rather well into the Amherstburg tax pot. It would be really nice to reap some benefits for our contributions as like I said, we feel forgotten over here!

    My interest is in the development of the Duffy’s site...Currently, if you are familiar with the plans, there is to be built an amphitheater..which is an open space, along with..looks like cement benches, and with concession trucks along the Main Street front perimeter....
    Performances will be dependent on weather, and as far as I can see.. people will be sitting outside, and susceptible to sun or rain.... and will only be used during the summer more months.
    Our town needs something that will bring people here, and can be used for most of the year...
    Your answer is An Amherstburg Playhouse....
    Actors guilds will come here to perform, and it will bring additional revenue to all Amherstburg businesses....
    Parking lot can be from across the street, and Shuttle buses could run both from Allied, and the old Bob-lo dock....
    This is my opinion, and I hope it will be shared by others..

      How about a community centre located on the west side of centennial park - lots of parking, centrally located. A staged facility where everything from dance recitals, banquets, actors guilds, & the Windsor symphony, etc.etc.etc., can be held year round...

      Yes, I agree that a facility that can be used all year would be a better idea. With all of the wineries surrounding us, along with the nature trails, etc., Amherstburg should draw those visitors here with some cultural activities throughout the year. A really nice restaurant at the water's edge with a big patio would draw patrons year round too.

      Instead of the amphitheater I would feel that a dance hall type building with French doors that can open out in the hot summer nights overlooking the river, be erected instead. A building similar to The Palais Royale in Toronto, but on a smaller scale. http://www.palaisroyale.ca/rooms/ballroom/ This would draw in people all year round; weddings, anniversary parties, alternating Saturday jazz nights to dance to, etc. In the summer months, propose special dance/music venues (let's bring back the Lindy Hop - dance competitions - Rock that Swing type dances!) Make this town more romantic by the riverside rather than so sports/fast food oriented. A little added sophistication to the town, not that it isn't present; just heighten it a little to appeal to tourists too from Canada, U.S. and International.

    I know they are costly to maintain but an indoor water facility would be great. Something similar to the Vollmer Complex in LaSalle would be great. Some fun slides for the kids, swimming lessons, adult lengths, water aerobics. A therapy pool perhaps. Thanks.

      Kathy - your suggestion is a good one... Every other community in the county has an Aquadic centre, there is a reason, they attract potential new residents, & because of new residents, they attract new business growth. Yes they are costly to maintain but the spinoff from added new residential tax revenue & commercial tax revenue will far offset the operation costs, plus it's the type of facility where we can all come together as a community - something that is sadly missing in our town. Plus once construction starts on the new high school, we loose our one & only Lions pool. Let the Mayor know your thoughts & make sure it's a question that gets asked to those running for council this fall. Sure like where you're coming from - Kent Williams

    As director of Woofa~Roo Pet Fest, I understand the love and desire for our community to embrace a dog park. Unfortunately the reality of a dog park isn't always as great as it sounds. While it may sound lovely, a leash free dog park can put your dog at risk. Not all, but SOME dog owners in dog parks do not pay attention to the social cues or the developing sagas between dogs, leaving their and other dogs open to unwanted aggression. Many people feel a dog park is a place to just let their dog wade through a sea of other animals without proper socialization or introduction. How many people would let their child head into a group of strangers without observing every move they make? Not many - this sentiment should be the same with dogs but it isn't. Trouble could be just around the corner and many can't identify it with dogs nor are they within reach to do anything about it. It just takes one 'school ground bully' to cause an issue. And it happens more often then you think. Not all dog park dangers are obvious. With more and more dogs being imported from meat farms in Asia and rescues in the US, new strains of dog flu and vaccine resistant kennel cough is cause for concern. These highly contagious diseases can be spread at dog parks when you cannot control who your dog is contact with. There is a tall order, in my opinion, to safely bring a leash free park to town - and even then, there is no guarantee your dog will not become a victim of attack or disease. First you need a pet policy well established and posted which emphasizes keeping the park clean, vaccinating your dog and maintain supervision while using the park. Secondly, you need to establish a different attitude about the dog parks and encourage people to 'pay attention' and not just sit and play on their phones while their dog is wreaking havoc on the other side of the field. Perhaps change the term 'dog park' to 'dog friendly park' implying that this is a people park meant to encourage human involvement and interaction. Third, ensure there is a separate space for small dogs away from larger dogs. This is not just for the benefit of the small dog but for the larger dogs who are often blamed for reacting to a smaller dog's aggression. If Amherstburg could bring a pet friendly park to town that would emphasize owners to self govern - great - but it's unrealistic and I think we are better off spending our resources developing trails and waterfront property to enhance active play with your pet.

      We used to visit a dog park in the city where we lived four hours east of here. When the park first opened, it was great. The dogs that visited the park either played together or did their own thing and it was a fun place to go. All of a sudden, there were more people coming with out of control dogs. Some of us were threatened by a dog owner when we confronted them about their vicious dog. The last time that I visited the park, there was a big blood stain just inside the gate of the fenced in park. It was the second time in two months that a family pet had been murdered in front of their owner by an out of control, vicious dog.

    Our family would LOVE to see an improvement in the park behind St. Joseph school and church in River Canard. The pathways throughout the park are much too narrow and make it very unsafe when walking children to and from the school and through the park. The park also desperately needs upgraded play equipment. We moved into the neighbourhood a year ago last August and we have 2 young girls that loved going to the park for about a month and then stopped wanting to go because it is boring and there is nothing to do. This neighbourhood had slowly started having a decrease in youth, but in recent years, the elderly population is moving out and younger families are moving in. With the revitalization of the youth in the area, it seems fitting for the park to get a revitalization as well. It would also encourage a more close knit community as the way it stands now, we are kind of in the middle of nowhere and our children don't really have anywhere to go unless they are driven.
    I would also like to see police monitoring the speed of drivers on Beneteau, especially during before and after school. With the lack of sidewalks in this neighbourhood forcing residents to walk on the road or our neighbour's lawns, it is often very dangerous and there have been a few close calls with drivers speeding along Beneteau at easily 60 kph when it is posted 40 kph. I would have no problem allowing my girls to ride their bikes or walk to their friends places in the neighbourhood if it weren't for these ignorant residents that seem to think that because the road is made for cars, they rule the road and pedestrians can get out of their way and quick!

    I would like to see some consultation with the people of our town before making major decisions about our parks, such as entering into discussion with the school board about selling off Centennial Park. When was it decided that our largest and most used park was no longer required? What consultation was done with the public BEFORE these discussions took place? Why have we had 3 public meetings and umpteen council sessions on having a fire in one's back yard but absolutely NONE on the possible sale of Centennial Park, one of our largest and certainly our most-used town park?

      Peter - I have already had this conversation with the mayor. U are completely correct , we should not allow the board of education to dictate where their new school is to be built, particularly when it involves one of our most valuable assets. His reply was once the board makes their location decision it would be in our? best interests not to oppose it.
      I have been lobbying for a YMCA, a facility that every age group can be part of. I have sent my thoughts to all administration. The new high school should be located at the Libro Centre, where future residential growth & development needs to be located. On the west side of centennial park with all of the area,since the removal of the arena, bulldoze our disgusting community pool & in a 3 phase development replace it with a Y, & incorporate 2 facilities - a seniors centre & a community centre - other than the mayor, I've had no reply or acknowledgement ...

        Kent, it's shameful that other councilors appear unwilling to go on the record, at the risk of expending political capital on this issue. Now we have this big fanfare about a Parks Master Plan. Well, shouldn't we have had this "Master Plan" before committing Centennial Park as part of the siting process for the new High School? Why the silence and back dealing? Why are the townspeople of Amherstburg going to be handed a fait accompli, rather than being offered a public forum to voice their opinions? If our Mayor or members of Town Council actually read this new forum, can the respond to our concerns? Otherwise, this site isn't even worth the time it takes to key in our feelings on the matter.

We have little in the way of economic growth. We have fallen way behind what the rest of the county & Windsor are doing to attract economic development - just look what's happening all around us.It won't be long before it's official - A'burg will be a bedroom community, that is provided we can continue to offer cheap real estate.

            This town is a bedroom community. Meant only to live in. No wonder we are one of the safest towns in Canada. We attract retirees from Toronto. People who have young families, live here and work outside Amherstburg. I'm 47 years old, born and raised in this town. When I was growing up, we had a mall to walk in, arcades, bowling alley, amusement park (Boblo), movie theatre and an arena. Now, we have a arena. Sign of the times I guess. I just wonder why we have a beautiful new arena with no pool. Why the gym in town is the only place to go.

              The reason we don't have a pool is because of an agreement with the Movati Club & town council that was signed a number of years ago.Not by our present council.The agreement expires Dec.31 2018 & because of a financial contribution to the Libro Centre by the Movati Club, the agreement stated that the town could not offer a facility or programs that would compete with the Movati Club. Thus no pool.... Now with the new high school announcement to be located at Cenntenial Park, we will loose our existing community Lions pool. Please let our Mayor & council know your wishes for a pool at the Libro Centre. Something has to be done to replace the existing pool which will eventually be gone..Kent Williams

    I would like to see a leash free dog park in town sooner rather than later. There are many parks with the open space to be able to do a fenced on area and ample parking like at Libro, Thrasher park, centennial, or the closed down school St. benard which alrady has fencing around it. As a dog parent to 2 dogs that love to play with other dogs it is not always feasible to drive 35 mins to Windsor or Essex where the closest dog parks are. This community certainly is a dog loving community which was very evident at the recent Woof-a-roo festival. I'm confident that a leash free dog park would be widely used by our community.

      • Andrew Dion almost 3 years ago
        Unfortunately there are no real safeguards in place for your concerns. Dog parks are rarely if ever policed by bylaw officers. However people who go to dog parks regularly tend to enforce the rules if dogs get out of hand and are too aggressive. As for vaccinations the best thing I can say is ensure your dog is vaccinated to limit the possibility of any issues. That's not to say that dogs that are vaccinated can't catch something from another dog. My dog was vaccinated for kennel cough yet he still ended up getting it from a shelter. These are the chances you take when you use a dog park. As for licencing we all know that's just a cash grab for municipalities as licencing does not create responsible pet ownership or ensure that pets are vaccinated. Ultimately you have to hope that the people that use the dog park follow the rules and etiquette of a dog park.

      Is this really the best location that has come up for a dog park?

          No I never said that at all. Not sure where you got that idea from. There are parks within town that have the open space available and already parking available as well. Parks like centennial, Purdie park on Richmond, or even utilizing the already fenced in property of the closed down school on Richmond. These locations are all central to town and I'm sure would attract a lot of use. There are other alternatives as well like utilizing part of the Libro property or Thrasher Park by Kingsbridge. Like I said I am no expert on this these are just my thoughts.

      I definitely support the idea of an off leash dog park. To be honest, any location would be great but obviously something central would be ideal.

      I liked your idea of repurposing something like an unused school yard. The town doesn't need to make this a multi million dollar investment. Start off by putting up some fences in a park which isn't used as often. A good example is the north half of Mickle park in Amherst Pointe. It is an overgrown ball diamond that is never used.

      There may be better locations,and an opportunity to build a state of the art facility. But I'd prefer to see one sooner than later.

      I think you need to centralize the dog park. Jack Purdie park has lots of space. Same with the Libro. I'm not saying those are the best spots but to me, having a dog park the majority/good # of residents can walk to would be most logical. However I have driven to a few already (out of the town) so I'm going to it either way regardless of location.

    I love our town. I've been here approximately 15 years and absolutely love it. If we are being absolutely honest here, I'm 40 yrs. old and still love to play on the swings, on the slides, the soft pads and the splash pad. I don't do it as often as I'd like because it is always so full of tiny children and babies and the outdoor shelter picnic area is often occupied as well. It would be wonderful if there was a spot for more adult water features so we can play too. In B.C there are waterfalls to swim under and play in. As you drive more up north there will be places for adults to play in the water but this would be wonderful for seniors too. Why not? Maybe the teenagers won't put so many bubbles in the fountains if there was places for them to play like that too. Just a thought.

    We go to the park and splash pad by the water often, and love the facilities! However, would love to see more parks similar to this (with nice equipment and padded ground) ex- where the pool is on Simcoe. There is so much potential in that area but the park equipment is old, with only a few swings, slide, etc... and isn't practical for young toddlers to enjoy.

    As a parent of toddlers and teenage children, i can say we have used alot of the parks in town. What i`ve found with the parks like the one on Richmond near Kentucky, and the one in Crownridge, is a lack of shade, and picnic tables. It will take quite a few years for the trees currently planted to provide a decent amount of shade, so we should look into viable alternatives. Both of these parks also have alot of open/unused space.

    Rather than creating new parks we need to upkeep the parks we currently have. The park on Richmond street is in need of major updates. The playset for the youngest children is rusting away leaving some very dangerous areas where the children can cut themselves. An example is the metal table and the stairs of the playset both have rusted out, sharp areas that could potentially hurt children.

    The little Park by St Joseph's church lost it's play equipment a few years back. I'm not certain why it was taken down. I do know that my then 1 year old, now 8, was on it daily without incident. We are now left with very little for the kids to play with in a subdivision that is full of children. Now that St Joseph's school enrolment is ballooning very successfully, the sub is getting even more kids living in it do to the popularity of the new French immersion program at the school. Homes are being scooped up by young families with children because of the school and the great community. But, we need play equipment to keep the enthusiasm going so this neighbourhood doest stagnate. It doesn't need to be extravagant. Climbers and slides would suffice. I'm often at the park and hear people wondering aloud, not complaining mind you, why we don't have adequate play equipment for the kids. This needs to be addressed in council meetings asap. Thanks for reading and I hope that my thoughts are acted upon. James Watkins, 292 Alta B Crescent, Amherstburg
