Riverside Riverside is a neighbourhood on the eastern edge of Windsor, Ontario. It is best defined by the waterfront road, Riverside Drive, which runs parallel to the Detroit River. Riverside was a town until it was annexed by Windsor on Jan. 1, 1966. Prohibition had a huge influence on this area. The proximity to the monied interests of the U.S. led to the flourishing of several taverns that served not only as watering holes but as ties for American interests to secure alcohol. Today it is known as one of the most desired family neighbourhoods of the Windsor-Essex County area with many parks and trails.


Walkerville Walkerville (originally called Walker's Town), a heritage precinct of Windsor, Ontario was officially established in 1890, founded by Hiram Walker, owner and producer of Canadian Club Whisky.

Later, the town supported other major industries, notably automotive manufacturing. Today, Walkerville is known as one of the most trendiest neighbourhoods in Windsor and the surrounding counties with their social scene & small business establishments.
