Windsor 1918


Thanks to the contributions from the Rotary Club of Windsor (1918) and many additional partners, the Rotary (1918) Centennial Hub has been constructed.  This Hub connects the Herb Gray Parkway Trails, Town of Tecumseh Trails, Town of LaSalle Trails and the Chrysler Canada Greenway, and allows our community vision of a region connected by trails to become a reality.  

The grand opening of this community trail will be celebrated in partnership with CWATS and its partners and as part of the Ontario 150 Celebrate by Bike event on Saturday, October 14, 2017 at 10:30 am, at the Rotary (1918) Centennial Hub location (Howard and Laurier Parkway).

Members of the Rotary Club of Windsor (1918) are invited to attend this event which celebrates the completion of this major project.
