Due to construction of the Windjammer Park Improvements (Mid-May 2018 - Late Spring 2019), large areas of the park will temporarily be unavailable to the public.

The Waterfront Trail, tidelands (beach), lagoon and ballfields will remain open.

The City has many more beautiful parks that are available.  Please visit the links below:

The Big Picture: Windjammer Park Integration Plan

The Windjammer Park Integration Plan (WPIP) is the overarching plan that is guiding the future programming of Windjammer Park.

City Council approved the Windjammer Park Integration Plan on June 7, 2016. The plan is based on a six-month public process that gathered feedback from the community, through a Community Advisory Group and two public open houses. You can view the full plan here and the document appendices here.
