“Beautiful, quaint neighbourhood, steeped in a rich history.”

Olde Walkerville Neighborhood
Ranked #5 of 91 things to do in Windsor

Attraction details
Reviewed 12 July 2017

This area is a jewel in Windsor. Lots of history steeped in this neighbourhood. This was where Hiram Walker started it all. There are stories of the rum running days as well. Beautiful homes that you wish you could knock on the door and ask for a tour. Our former Prime Minister lived in a home in the area.
Art in the Park is held every year in the beautiful Willistead Park.
You won't be disappointed.

As I've written previouslty, this area is the best Windsor has to offer because of choice, quality and charm.

We didn't have as much time as we would have liked, but what we saw was awesome.
The Urban Art Market is a must. All local artisans with so much talent. We found it to be quite unique, not the usual. The interesting shops,highly recommended restaurants, are on our list for next visit. The older homes with their well kept landscaped yards, balconies and front porches are a joy.

One of the most important neighbourhoods in Windsor, we have a gem of a place that needs more development along the main strip. Massive potential if only we have a non-Windsor development attitude. New culture demands retro-quality establishments. Posh, hip, coo and avant guard is the way forward but still not enough get it.
