Windsor Sculpture Park

The Windsor Sculpture Park

Open year-round. Free admission. Parking available within the park. The Windsor Sculpture Park is a museum without walls, a unique park showcasing more than 31 large-scale, internationally recognized works of contemporary sculpture by world-renowned artists. It is a place of convergence and divergence, difference and similarity. The Windsor Sculpture Park is located on the shores of the Detroit River within Ambassador and Centennial Parks, between the Ambassador Bridge (Huron Church Road) and The Art Gallery of Windsor (Church Street).

The Windsor Sculpture Park is made possible by the generosity of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Odette and the P & L Odette Foundation. The park is maintained by the City of Windsor, Parks and Recreation. For Mr. Odette, it was extremely important to have art in public spaces. He generously donated to Windsor and viewed his gifts as part of the Windsor culture scene - an outdoor public gallery open every day of the year, free of charge to Windsorites and visitors.

The recent name change to Windsor Sculpture Park reinforces the importance of the sculpture park as a significant cultural asset and a place which welcomes  new sculptures donated by other individuals and groups. The Odette Family continues to have very strong ties to Windsor and a strong commitment to recognizing our city as a cultural leader. Mr. Odette's greatest wish was that Windsor's outdoor sculpture park would be widely known and firmly positioned as a Windsor cultural asset. 

His legacy, including the gifts of numerous sculpture, transformed the riverfront parks. We are truly grateful to the Odette family and their vision for art in the riverfront lands.
