Island Information:

Peche Island is an 86-acre island purchased by Hiram Walker in 1883. Walker used the island as a summer home and his buildings included a stable, large home, greenhouse, and icehouse. The property was sold in 1907. The City of Windsor acquired the land from the province of Ontario in 1999 and has invested over the years to protect and reinforce the area while increasing accessibility and providing opportunities for community engagement.
