King's Navy Yard Park

Amherstburg is known for its diverse and high-quality parks, which meet a range of active and passive needs for residents and tourists alike.  The Town has 26 park properties totaling 113 hectares for an average of 5.1 ha per 1,000 residents (based on 2016 population).

Amherstburg boasts multiple large-scale and high-quality parks including King's Navy Yard park and the Libro Credit Union Centre which includes the country's only Miracle League Diamond - a fully accessible sports field for people with disabilities.

Parks are classified into the following hierarchy:

  • Destination: Heavily used by residents and tourists for community events, festivals and passive recreation. 
  • Athletic: Contain a variety of athletic amenities for organized recreation, such as multiple sports fields, field houses and community or Town-wide recreation amenities.
  • Leisure: Parks primarily supporting children's play activities.  Often situated in subdivisions.
  • Heritage: Public spaces and parks with historic or cultural significance that are of Town-wide importance. 
  • Civic: Located in gateways or the downtown core that support the Town's social and cultural fabric and create a sense of place.  Typically characterized by a mix of floral gardens and hardscape areas that can be programmed for various uses.
  • Linear: Linear corridors (such as trails and greenways) that provide connections with the open space system (for habitat) and between local points of interest (for pedestrians and /or cyclists). Consist largely of unimproved open space and/or trail/greenway infrastructure.
  • Natural: Municipal open space and natural properties used for conservation and/or passive recreational activities.  Lands will be largely undeveloped and contain open space or natural heritage features such as woodlots, wetlands, conservation habitat, etc.

The parks in Amherstburg support many recreational amenities and enhance the quality of life for the community as a whole.
